Sirach 12:12
Don’t put them next to you; they might overthrow you and take your place. Don’t sit them on your right side, since they might seek your seat. In the end you will understand my words, and you will be pierced by what I’ve said.
Set him not by thee, neither let him sit on thy right hand, lest he turn into thy place, and seek to take thy seat: and at the last thou acknowledge my words, and be pricked with my sayings.
Seat an enemy at your right hand, and the next thing you know he'll be trying to get your own place of honor. Put him next to you, and he will overthrow you. Then you will realize the truth of my words, and be stung with regret when you remember them.
Do not let them stand near you, lest they push you aside and take your place. Do not let them sit at your right hand, or they will demand your seat, And in the end you will appreciate my advice, when you groan with regret, as I warned.
Do not put him next to you, or he may overthrow you and take your place. Do not let him sit at your right hand, or else he may try to take your own seat, and at last you will realize the truth of my words, and be stung by what I have said.

Set thou not him beside thee, neither sit he at thy right side, lest he turn (against thee), and stand in thy place; lest peradventure he turn into thy place, and inquire (about) thy chair, and in (or at) the last time thou know (or remember) my words, and be pricked in (or with) my words.
