Sirach 28:24
Watch out! Fence in your property with thorns,
For its yoke is a yoke of iron: and its bands are bands of brass.
Don't you fence in your property? Don't you lock up your money?
As you fence in your property with thorns, so make a door and a bolt for your mouth.
As you fence in your property with thorns, so make a door and a bolt for your mouth. As you lock up your silver and gold, so make balances and scales for your words.

See that you fence in your property with thorns, lock up your silver and gold,
See that you fence in your property with thorns, lock up your silver and gold,
Beset thine ears with thorns, and do not thou hear a wicked tongue; and make thou doors to (or for) thy mouth, and locks to (or for) thine ears. Well thou, or temper thou, thy gold, and thy silver; [Hedge thine ears with thorns, and do thou not hear the shrewd (or depraved) tongue; and to thy mouth make thou doors, and locks to thine ears. Thy gold and thy silver melt together;]
