Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 14.8-14.11
NaN


nanMy son, treat yourself well, according to your means,and present worthy offerings to the Lord.


nanEvil is the man with a grudging eye;he averts his face and disregards people.


nanA greedy mans eye is not satisfied with a portion,and mean injustice withers the soul.

5.8. What has our arrogance profited us?And what good has our boasted wealth brought us? 11.24. For thou lovest all things that exist,and hast loathing for none of the things which thou hast made,for thou wouldst not have made anything if thou hadst hated it. 11.25. How would anything have endured if thou hadst not willed it?Or how would anything not called forth by thee have been preserved? 11.26. Thou sparest all things, for they are thine,O Lord who lovest the living. 14.3. but it is thy providence, O Father, that steers its course,because thou hast given it a path in the sea,and a safe way through the waves 14.8. But the idol made with hands is accursed, and so is he who made it;because he did the work, and the perishable thing was named a god.
3. Anon., Letter of Aristeas, 188, 204, 217, 220, 187
