or the one who hears it may shame you and the charge against you will stand.

Debate thy cause with thy neighbor - Take the advice of friends. Let both sides attend to their counsels; but do not tell the secret of thy business to any. After squandering your money away upon lawyers, both they and the judge will at last leave it to be settled by twelve of your fellow citizens! O the folly of going to law!

8. Good luck, it is odds but he miscarries in his suit." O the glorious uncertainty of the law!

But their spirits cannot yet …

If you take your neighbor to court, do not betray another's confidence,
Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a ruling rightly given.
