Sirach 28:26
Pay attention, and don’t slip by your tongue; don’t fall in front of those who are just waiting to attack you.
Its continuance shall not be for a long time, but it shall possess the ways of the unjust: and the just shall not be burnt with its flame.
Someone may be waiting for you to slip, and if you are not careful, you will stumble over your own words and fall down in front of him.
Take care not to slip by your tongue and fall victim to one lying in ambush.
Take care not to err with your tongue, and fall victim to one lying in wait.
Take care not to err with your tongue, and fall victim to one lying in wait.
Take care not to err with your tongue, and fall victim to one lying in wait.
Take care not to err with your tongue, and fall victim to one lying in wait.
Beware lest you err with your tongue, lest you fall before him who lies in wait.
Beware lest you err with your tongue, lest you fall before him who lies in wait.
And take heed, lest peradventure thou slide in (or with) (the) tongue, and fall in the sight of enemies, setting treason, to (or for) thee, and thy fall be uncurable into death. [And take heed, lest peradventure thou slide in the tongue, and thou fall in the sight of enemies, waiting to thee (or lying in wait for thee), and thy falling be unhealable into death.]
