Where there is entertainment, do not pour out talk; do not display your cleverness at the wrong time.

Where there is entertainment, do not pour out talk; do not display your cleverness at the wrong time.
Where there is entertainment, do not pour out talk; do not display your cleverness at the wrong time.

Where hearing is not, shed thou not out a word; and do not thou be enhanced uncovenably (or inopportunely) in thy wisdom. [Where is not hearing, pour thou not out a sermon; and uncovenably do thou not be enhanced in thy wisdom.]
