Put not forth thyself in the presence of the
Intrude not thyself into his presence; or rush not into it in a
rude and irreverent way; or be not ambitious to be a courtier: or

F1 as the word signifies; do not appear too
gay at court, or make too splendid an appearance, above thy fortune
and station; and which may seem to vie with and outdo the king
himself, which will not be well taken; princes love not to be
equalled, and much less excelled; and stand not in the place
of great [men];
where the king's family or his nobles should stand, his ministers
and counsellors of state, and those that wait upon him. F1 (rdhtt
la) "ne tibi assumas honorem", Cocceius; "ne honores
teipsum", Michaelis; "ne magnificum te facias", Schultens; "ne
magnifices te", Pagninus, Mercerus, Gejerus.
