Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 7
Ecclesiasticus / Sirach Chapters
2 shun wrong, and it will avoid you.
4 Do not ask the Lord for the highest place, or the king for a seat of honour.
5 Do not parade your uprightness before the Lord, or your wisdom before the king.
13 Mind you tell no lies, for no good can come of it.
16 Do not swell the ranks of sinners, remember that the retribution will not delay.
19 Do not turn against a wise and good wife; her gracious presence is worth more than gold.
25 Marry a daughter off, and you have finished a great work; but give her to a man of sense.
27 With all your heart honour your father, never forget the birthpangs of your mother.
29 With all your soul, fear the Lord and revere his priests.
32 And also give generously to the poor, so that your blessing may lack nothing.
35 Do not shrink from visiting the sick; in this way you will make yourself loved.
36 In everything you do, remember your end, and you will never sin.
