Ecclesiasticus / Sirach - Chapter 33
2 No one who hates the Law is wise, one who is hypocritical about it is like a storm-tossed ship.
4 Prepare what you have to say and you will get a hearing, marshal your information before you answer.
8 They have been differentiated in the mind of the Lord, who has diversified the seasons and feasts;
9 some he has made more important and has hallowed, others he has made ordinary days.
10 Human beings come from the ground, Adam himself was formed out of earth;
13 Like clay in the hands of the potter to mould as it pleases him, so are human beings in the hands of their Maker to reward as he judges right.
14 Opposite evil stands good, opposite death, life; so too opposite the devout stands the sinner.
15 Contemplate all the works of the Most High, you will find they go in pairs, by opposites.
16 Although the last to come, I have kept my eyes open like a man picking up what the grape-pickers have left.
20 Neither to son nor wife, brother nor friend, give power over yourself during your own lifetime. And do not give your property to anyone else, in case you regret it and have to ask for it back.
22 better for your children to come begging to you, than for you to have to go begging to them.
24 The day your life draws to a close, at the hour of death, then distribute your heritage.
27 Yoke and harness will bow the neck, for a bad servant, torments and the rack.
28 Set him to work, so that he will not be idle; idleness teaches every kind of mischief.
33 If you ill-treat him and he runs away, which way will you go to look for him?
