Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 10.3-10.5


nanAn undisciplined king will ruin his people,but a city will grow through the understanding of its rulers.


nanA poor man is honored for his knowledge,while a rich man is honored for his wealth.


nanThe bee is small among flying creatures,but her product is the best of sweet things.


nanLike a decoy partridge in a cage, so is the mind of a proud man,and like a spy he observes your weakness;


nanThe government of the earth is in the hands of the Lord,and over it he will raise up the right man for the time.


nanDo not boast about wearing fine clothes,nor exalt yourself in the day that you are honored;for the works of the Lord are wonderful,and his works are concealed from men.


nanThe success of a man is in the hands of the Lord,and he confers his honor upon the person of the scribe.


nanMany kings have had to sit on the ground,but one who was never thought of has worn a crown.

The wisdom of a humble man will lift up his head,and will seat him among the great. 10.1. My son, do not busy yourself with many matters;if you multiply activities you will not go unpunished,and if you pursue you will not overtake,and by fleeing you will not escape.
