Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 14
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
2 Blessed is anyone whose conscience brings no reproach and who has never given up hope.
3 Wealth is not the right thing for the niggardly, and what use are possessions to the covetous?
4 Whoever hoards by stinting himself is hoarding for others, and others will live sumptuously on his riches.
6 No one is meaner than the person who is mean to himself, this is how his wickedness repays him.
8 Wicked the person who has an envious eye, averting his face, and careless of others' lives.
11 My child, treat yourself as well as you can afford, and bring worthy offerings to the Lord.
12 Remember that death will not delay, and that you have never seen Sheol's contract.
14 Do not refuse yourself the good things of today, do not let your share of what is lawfully desired pass you by.
26 he sets his children in her shade, and camps beneath her branches;
27 he is sheltered by her from the heat, and in her glory he makes his home.
