Cum invitiátus fúeris ad ad núptias, non discúmbas in primo loco, ne forte honorátior te sit invitátus ab illo, et véniens is, quis te et illum vacávit, dicat tibi: Da huic locum: et tunc incípias cum rubóre novíssimum locum tenére. Sed cum vocátus fúeris, vade, recúmbe in novíssimo loco: ut, cum vénerit qui te invitávit, dicat tibi: Amice, ascénde supérius. Tunc erit tibi glória coram simul discumbéntibus: quia omnis qui se exáltat, humiliábitur: et qui se humíliat, exaltábitur.

After Luke 14: 1-11

When thou art invited to a wedding, sit not down in the first place, lest perhaps one more honorable than thou be invited by him and he that invited thee and him, come and say to thee: Give this man place: and then thou begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when thou art invited, go, sit down in the lowest place: that when he who invited thee cometh, he may say to thee: Friend, go up higher. Then shalt thou have glory before them that sit at table with thee: because every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled and he that humbled himself shall be exalted.
