Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
5 Taking pleasure in evil earns condemnation;
7 Never repeat what you are told and you will come to no harm;
10 Have you heard something? Let it die with you. Courage! It will not burst you!
13 Question your friend, he may have done nothing at all; and if he has done anything, he will not do it again.
14 Question your neighbour, he may have said nothing at all; and if he has said anything, he will not say it again.
15 Question your friend, for slander is very common, do not believe all you hear.
17 Question your neighbour before you threaten him, and defer to the Law of the Most High.
20 Wisdom consists entirely in fearing the Lord, and wisdom is entirely constituted by the fulfilling of the Law.
22 Being learned in evil, however, is not wisdom, there is no prudence in the advice of sinners.
23 There is a cleverness that is detestable; whoever has no wisdom is a fool.
27 he hides his face and pretends to be deaf, if he is not unmasked, he will take advantage of you.
29 You can tell a person by his appearance, you can tell a thinker by the look on his face.
30 The way a person dresses, the way he laughs, the way he walks, tell you what he is.

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.
