Do not give holy things to dogs Gospel of Thomas Saying 93

'Do not give holy things to dogs, lest they throw them upon the dunghill. Do not throw pearls to swine lest they might make [mud] of it'; 'or they might bring it [to naught'; 'or they might grind it [to bits]

Saying 93
Here as in saying 62 we must watch who we are speaking to, we must only share the truth with the worthy for dogs and swine may persecute us and our teachings bringing them to naught. As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a pretty woman that is turning away from sensibleness

93)# <Jesus said,> "Do not give what is holy [the Keys, mystery] to dogs [scribes, Jews, Pharisees who will always "return to their own vomit"], lest they throw them on the dung-heap [hide the keys in worldly traditions etc..see v - 39 "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered."]. Do not throw the pearls [the true (spiritual) meanings in the scriptures] to swine [Christo-pagans], lest they grind it [to bits] [using their own lower/outward (carnal) reasoning to anathematize their higher meaning "Now there were more than forty who make this cabal, who any, coming to the chief priests and the elders, say,  "With an anathema we anathematize ourselves to taste nothing till which we should kill Paul." who was sharing these hidden meanings with the disciples of Christ]."
