Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
1 Take pity on us, Master, Lord of the universe, look at us, spread fear of yourself throughout all other nations.
4 Let them acknowledge you, just as we have acknowledged that there is no God but you, Lord.
13 Fill Zion with your praises and your sanctuary with your glory.
14 Vindicate those whom you created first, fulfil what has been prophesied in your name.
19 As the palate discerns the flavour of game, so a shrewd listener detects lying words.
20 A perverse character causes depression in others; it needs experience to know how to repay such a one.
22 A woman's beauty delights the beholder, a man likes nothing better.
24 The man who takes a wife has the makings of a fortune, a helper to match himself, a pillar of support.
27 So it is with the man who has no nest, and lodges wherever night overtakes him.

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.
