Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
2 However many you have, take no pleasure in them, unless the fear of the Lord lives among them.
8 He did not spare the people with whom Lot lived; he abhorred them, rather, for their pride.
13 the sinner will not escape with his ill-gotten gains nor the patience of the devout go for nothing.
18 For see, the sky and the heavens above the sky, the abyss and the earth shake at his visitation.
23 Such are the thoughts of the person of little sense, stupid, misguided, cherishing his folly.
24 Listen to me, my child, and learn knowledge, and give your whole mind to my words.
25 I shall expound discipline methodically and proclaim knowledge with precision.
26 When God created his works in the beginning, he assigned them their places as soon as they were made.
27 He determined his works for all time, from their origins to their distant generations. They know neither hunger nor weariness, and they never desert their duties.
28 Not one has ever got in the way of another, and they will never disobey his word.
30 He covered its surface with every kind of animal, and to it they will return.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
