Sirach 20:8
Those who talk excessively will be loathed, and those who pretend to have authority will be hated.
He that useth many words shall hurt his own soul: and he that taketh authority to himself unjustly shall be hated.
No one can stand a person who talks too long and will not give others a chance to speak.
Whoever talks too much is detested; whoever pretends to authority is hated.
Whoever talks too much is detested, and whoever pretends to authority is hated.
Whoever talks too much is detested, and whoever pretends to authority is hated.
Whoever talks too much is detested, and whoever pretends to authority is hated.
Whoever talks too much is detested, and whoever pretends to authority is hated.
Whoever uses too many words will be loathed, and whoever usurps the right to speak will be hated.
Whoever uses too many words will be loathed, and whoever usurps the right to speak will be hated.
He that useth many words, hurteth his soul; and he that taketh power to himself unjustly [or wrongfully], shall be hated.
