Lingua Latina Cap. XXX.

This sentence is weird to me. I was wondering if someone could just give me a English rendering ad litteram: "Equidem" inquit Orontēs "sententiam meam nōn ante dīcam quam utrumque gustavero"
In hoc enim fallimur, quod mortem prospicimus" -- Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Does ordering things as follows help?
"Equidem", inquit Orontes, "sententiam meam non dicam antequam utrumque gustavero".
