Latin translation:quoniam in similitudinem arioli et coniectoris aestimat quod ignorat
Explanation:
Dear Mark,

your quote is from King James Bible, Proverbs 23:7 , actually a fragment of it. The Latin from the Biblia Vulgata says this:

"quoniam in similitudinem arioli et coniectoris aestimat quod ignorat" -

It goes on like this "you will hear "Eat! Drink!" but your heart will not be with you".

Nice passage :)

Proverbia 23:7
