Sirach 11:4
Don’t take pride in the way you dress, and don’t promote yourself when you are being honored, because the Lord’s works are wonderful, and his works are hidden from humans.
Glory not in apparel at any time, and be not exalted in the day of thy honour: for the works of the Highest only are wonderful, and his works are glorious, and secret, and hidden.
Don't make fun of someone who has fallen on hard times and is dressed in rags. The Lord does wonderful things that human beings never notice.
Do not mock the one who wears only a loin-cloth, or scoff at a person’s bitter day. For strange are the deeds of the Lord, hidden from mortals his work.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, and do not exalt yourself when you are honored; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from humankind.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, and do not exalt yourself when you are honoured; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from humankind.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, and do not exalt yourself when you are honoured; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from humankind.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, and do not exalt yourself when you are honored; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from humankind.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, nor exalt yourself in the day that you are honored; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from men.
Do not boast about wearing fine clothes, nor exalt yourself in the day that you are honored; for the works of the Lord are wonderful, and his works are concealed from men.
Have thou never glory in clothing, and be thou not enhanced (or exalted) in the day of thine honour; for why the works of the Highest alone be wonderful, and his works be glorious, and hid, and unseen.
