Stand with indifferent face as if you are thinking something else!

The intelligent people will not plan
...anything in secret with others,

They will not be dependant
...on the King, the ruler,

They will not give their ears
...to what the King says to others,

In case if they happen to be
...in close association with the King,

let them stand with an indifferent face
...as if they are thinking something else!

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
