9If thou be among great men, make not thyself equal with them; and when ancient men are in place, use not many words. 10Before the thunder goeth lightning; and before a shamefaced man shall go favour. 11Rise up betimes, and be not the last; but get thee home without delay. 12There take thy pastime, and do what thou wilt: but sin not by proud speech.13And for these things bless him that made thee, and hath replenished thee with his good things. 14Whoso feareth the Lord will receive his discipline; and they that seek him early shall find favour. 15He that seeketh the law shall be filled therewith: but the hypocrite will be offended thereat.
