Sirach 13:10
Don’t be forward, or you might be rejected; and don’t stand far off, or you might be forgotten.
Beware that thou be not deceived Into folly, and be humbled.
If you push yourself on him, he will put you in your place. On the other hand, if you keep your distance from him, he will forget about you.
Do not draw too close, lest you be rebuffed, but do not keep too far away lest you be regarded as an enemy.
Do not be forward, or you may be rebuffed; do not stand aloof, or you will be forgotten.
Do not be forward, or you may be rebuffed; do not stand aloof, or you will be forgotten.
Do not be forward, or you may be rebuffed; do not stand aloof, or you will be forgotten.
Do not be forward, or you may be rebuffed; do not stand aloof, or you will be forgotten.
Do not push forward, lest you be repulsed; and do not remain at a distance, lest you be forgotten.
Do not push forward, lest you be repulsed; and do not remain at a distance, lest you be forgotten.
Be thou not greatly pressing, lest thou be hurtled down; and be thou not far from him, lest thou go into forgetting. [Be thou not too greedy, lest thou be put again; and be thou not far from him, lest thou go into forgetting.]
