6 Put not forth thyself in the presence of the king, and stand not in the place of great men:
7 it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,”(A) than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.
What you have seen with your eyes
7 For better it is that it be said unto thee, Come up hither; than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince whom thine eyes have seen.
