3Speak, thou that art the elder, for it becometh thee, but with sound judgment; and hinder not musick. 4Pour not out words where there is a musician, and shew not forth wisdom out of time. 5A concert of musick in a banquet of wine is as a signet of carbuncle set in gold. 6As a signet of an emerald set in a work of gold, so is the melody of musick with pleasant wine.7Speak, young man, if there be need of thee: and yet scarcely when thou art twice asked. 8Let thy speech be short, comprehending much in few words; be as one that knoweth and yet holdeth his tongue. 9If thou be among great men, make not thyself equal with them; and when ancient men are in place, use not many words.
