The very idiom is the second one: "Ne mittatis margaritas vestras ante porcos" Actually, "iacere" in Latin, mean "to lie". Maybe it has been confused with "iactare" (=to throw) - annabellanna 3 months ago

This Latin proverb comes from the Bible and is all about not wasting good stuff on people who do not appreciate it.

But the verb " jacere" is wrong, as I told you before. - annabellanna 1 month ago
