Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 42
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
1 The following things you should not be ashamed of, and do not sin from fear of what others think:
2 of the Law of the Most High or of the covenant, of a verdict that acquits the godless,
3 of keeping accounts with a travelling companion, of settling property on your friends,
5 of gaining from commercial transactions, of disciplining your children strictly, of lashing a wicked slave till you draw blood.
16 The shining sun looks down on all things, and the work of the Lord is full of his glory.
18 He has fathomed both the abyss and the human heart and seen into their devious ways; for the Most High knows all there is to know and sees the signs of the times.
19 He declares what is past and what will be, and reveals the trend of hidden things.
