Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 10
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
3 An undisciplined king will be the ruin of his people, a city owes its prosperity to the intelligence of its leading men.
11 For in death the portion of all alike will be insects, wild animals and worms.
14 The Lord has turned mighty princes off their thrones and seated the humble there instead.
15 The Lord has plucked up the proud by the roots, and planted the lowly in their place.
16 The Lord has overthrown the lands of the nations and destroyed them to the very foundations of the earth.
17 Sometimes he has taken them away and destroyed them, and blotted out their memory from the earth.
20 A leader is honoured by his brothers, and those who fear the Lord are honoured by him.
22 The rich, the noble, the poor, let them pride themselves on fearing the Lord.
24 Magnate, magistrate, potentate, all are to be honoured, but none is greater than the one who fears the Lord.
