Sirach 20:1
There is a bad time to rebuke someone. Those who keep silent are the prudent ones.
How much better is it to reprove, than to be angry, and not to hinder him that confesseth in prayer.
A person can be rebuked in the wrong way; it may be wiser to keep quiet than to speak.
There is an admonition that is untimely, but the silent person is the wise one.
There is a rebuke that is untimely, and there is the person who is wise enough to keep silent.
There is a rebuke that is untimely, and there is the person who is wise enough to keep silent.
There is a rebuke that is untimely, and there is the person who is wise enough to keep silent.
There is a rebuke that is untimely, and there is the person who is wise enough to keep silent.
There is a reproof which is not timely; and there is a man who keeps silent but is wise.
There is a reproof which is not timely; and there is a man who keeps silent but is wise.
There is false reproving in the ire of a man full of despising; and there is doom which is not proved to be good; and there is a still man, and he is prudent. [There is lying correction in wrath of the wrongful; and there is doom that is not proved to be good; and there is a bearer (or a person being) still, and he is prudent.]
