Sirach 7:5
Don’t justify yourself in the Lord’s presence, and don’t make a show of your wisdom with a king.
Justify not thyself before God, for he knoweth the heart: and desire not to appear wise before the king.
Don't try to convince the Lord that you are righteous or make a show of your wisdom before the king.
Do not parade your righteousness before the Lord, and before the king do not flaunt your wisdom.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, or display your wisdom before the king.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, or display your wisdom before the king.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, or display your wisdom before the king.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, or display your wisdom before the king.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, nor display your wisdom before the king.
Do not assert your righteousness before the Lord, nor display your wisdom before the king.
Justify thou not thee (or thyself) before God, for he is the knower of the heart; and do not thou desire to be seen wise with the king.
