Sirach 3:22
Think about what you have been commanded, because you have no need for matters that are hidden.
Seek not the things that are too high for thee, and search not into things above thy ability: but the things that God hath commanded thee, think on them always, and in many of his works be not curious.
Concentrate on the Law, which has been given to you. You do not need to know about things which the Lord has not revealed,
What is committed to you, pay heed to; what is hidden is not your concern.
Reflect upon what you have been commanded, for what is hidden is not your concern.
Reflect upon what you have been commanded, for what is hidden is not your concern.

Reflect upon what has been assigned to you, for you do not need what is hidden.
but (for)ever(more) think thou (upon) those things, which God commanded to thee; and be thou not curious in (or about) (the) full many works of him. For it is not needful to (or for) thee to see with thine eyes those things, that be hid. [but the things that God commanded to thee, think (upon) them evermore; and in (the) many works of him be thou not curious. Forsooth it is not needful to thee, those things that be hid, to see with thine eyes.]
