Sirach 9:13
Keep far away from people who have the authority to kill, and you won’t be worried by the fear of death. If you do approach them, don’t make a mistake, or they might take away your life. Be aware that you are stepping among traps and that you are walking on the parapet of the city’s walls.
And strive not with her over wine, lest thy heart decline towards her, and by thy blood thou fall into destruction.

Keep away from those who have power to kill, and you will not be filled with the dread of death. But if you come near them, do not offend them, lest they take away your life. Know that you are stepping among snares and walking over a net.

Be thou far from a man that hath power to slay, that is, from a cruel tyrant, and thou shalt not have suspicion of the dread of death; and if thou nighest (or approachest) to him, do not thou do any trespass, lest peradventure he take away thy life. Know thou the communing of death; for thou shalt enter into the midst of snares, and thou shalt go on the armours, (or the arms, or the weapons), of them that sorrow. [Afar be thou away from a man having power of slaying, and not of rearing, and thou shalt not over-trust the dread of death; and if thou nighest to him, do thou not anything do amiss, lest peradventure he take away thy life. The communion of death know thou; for in the middle of grins (or snares) thou shalt go in, and upon the arms of men sorrowing thou shalt go.]
