My son, eat honey, for it is good, Yes, the honey from the comb is sweet to your taste;
Have you found honey? Eat only what you need, That you not have it in excess and vomit it.
How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
It is not good to eat much honey, Nor is it glory to search out one's own glory.
