2 Kings 18:26
Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, and Shebnah, and Joah, said to Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, to thy servants in the Syrian language, for we understand it. And do not speak with us in the Jews' language, in the ears of the people
But I, as a deaf man, hear not. And I am as a mute man who opens not his mouth.
I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue. I will keep my mouth with a bridle while the wicked man is before me.
He who corrects a scoffer gets himself reviling. And he who reproves a wicked man [gets] himself a bruise.
Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like to him.
Therefore he who is prudent shall keep silence in such a time, for it is an evil time.
Do not give what is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before the swine, lest they trample them by their feet, and having turn back may lacerate you.
