Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 25
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
1 There are three things my soul delights in, and which are delightful to God and to all people: concord between brothers, friendship between neighbours, and a wife and husband who live happily together.
5 How fine a thing: wisdom in the aged, and considered advice coming from people of distinction!
7 There are nine things I can think of which strike me as happy, and a tenth which is now on my tongue: the man who can be proud of his children, he who lives to see the downfall of his enemies;
8 happy is he who keeps house with a sensible wife; he who does not toil with ox and donkey; he who has never sinned with his tongue; he who does not serve a man less worthy than himself;
9 happy is he who has acquired good sense and can find attentive ears for what he has to say;
11 The fear of the Lord surpasses everything; what can compare with someone who has mastered that?
19 No spite can approach the spite of a woman, may a sinner's lot be hers!
25 Do not let water find a leak, nor a spiteful woman give free rein to her tongue.
26 If she will not do as you tell her, get rid of her.
