Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 4
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
6 for if someone curses you in distress, his Maker will give ear to the imprecation.
11 Wisdom brings up her own children and cares for those who seek her.
12 Whoever loves her loves life, those who seek her early will be filled with joy.
20 Take circumstances into account and beware of evil, and have no cause to be ashamed of yourself;
21 for there is a shame that leads to sin and a shame that is honourable and gracious.
23 Do not refrain from speaking when it will do good, and do not hide your wisdom;
24 for your wisdom is made known by what you say, your erudition by the words you utter.
31 Do not let your hands be outstretched to receive, yet tight-fisted when the time comes to give back.
