Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 28.1-28.5


nanHe that takes vengeance will suffer vengeance from the Lord,and he will firmly establish his sins.


nanIn proportion to the fuel for the fire, so will be the burning,and in proportion to the obstinacy of strife will be the burning;in proportion to the strength of the man will be his anger,and in proportion to his wealth he will heighten his wrath.


nanForgive your neighbor the wrong he has done,and then your sins will be pardoned when you pray.


nanfor its yoke is a yoke of iron,and its fetters are fetters of bronze;


nanDoes a man harbor anger against another,and yet seek for healing from the Lord?


nanDoes he have no mercy toward a man like himself,and yet pray for his own sins?


nanIf he himself, being flesh, maintains wrath,who will make expiation for his sins?

6.1. AND now, my children, I exhort you, love ye each one his brother, and put away hatred from your hearts, love one another in deed, and in word, and in the inclination of the soul. 6.2. For in the presence of my father I spake peaceably to Joseph; and when I had gone out, the spirit of hatred darkened my mind, and stirred up my soul to slay him. 6.3. Love ye one another from the heart; and if a man sin against thee, speak peaceably to him, and in thy soul hold not guile; and if he repent and confess, forgive him. 6.4. But if he deny it, do not get into a passion with him, lest catching the poison from thee he take to swearing and so thou sin doubly. 6.5. Let not another man hear thy secrets when engaged in legal strife, lest he come to hate thee and become thy enemy, and commit a great sin against thee; for ofttimes he addresseth thee guilefully or busieth himself about thee with wicked intent. 6.6. And though he deny it and yet have a sense of shame when reproved, give over reproving him. For be who denieth may repent so as not again to wrong thee; yea, he may also honour thee, and fear and be at peace with thee. 6.7. And if he be shameless and persist in his wrong-doing, even so forgive him from the heart, and leave to God the avenging.
