The mystery must be kept hidden from all the ignoble,
And the secrets must be withheld from fools,
Consider what thou dost in sight of mankind
Our (secret) hopes must be concealed from all mankind.

 

Bodl 30

The mystery must be kept hidden from all the ignoble,
and the secrets must be withheld from fools.
Consider thine actions towards thy fellow men:
our hopes must be concealed from all mankind.

Nic 51

Nous devons nous garder de dire nos secrets aux vils indiscrets; au rossignol même nous devons les cacher. Considère donc le tourment que tu infliges aux âmes des humains, en les forçant ainsi à se dérober aux regards de tous.

P 48

Secrets from the mean of spright secret should be kept;
Myst'ries from the witless wight secret should be kept:
How thou deal'st with men, indeed, look thou have a care;
Heart and soul from all men's sight secret should be kept.

Th 96

Your secrets from all knaves you should conceal;
Nor should you mysteries to fools reveal;
Your hopes you should keep close from all mankind;
See you be careful how with men you deal.

Wh 54

To knaves Thy secret we must not confide,
To comprehend it is to fools denied,
See then to what hard case Thou doomest men,
Our hopes from one and all perforce we hide.
