Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
8 You who fear the Lord, trust him, and you will not be robbed of your reward.
10 Look at the generations of old and see: whoever trusted in the Lord and was put to shame? Or whoever, steadfastly fearing him, was forsaken? Or whoever called to him and was ignored?
13 Woe to the listless heart that has no faith, for such will have no protection.
15 Those who fear the Lord do not disdain his words, and those who love him keep his ways.
17 Those who fear the Lord keep their hearts prepared and humble themselves in his presence.

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.
