Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 34.6-34.18
NaN


nanI have seen many things in my travels,and I understand more than I can express.


nanI have often been in danger of death,but have escaped because of these experiences.


nanThe spirit of those who fear the Lord will live,for their hope is in him who saves them.


nanHe who fears the Lord will not be timid,nor play the coward, for he is his hope.


nanBlessed is the soul of the man who fears the Lord!To whom does he look? And who is his support?


nanThe eyes of the Lord are upon those who love him,a mighty protection and strong support,a shelter from the hot wind and a shade from noonday sun,a guard against stumbling and a defense against falling.


nanHe lifts up the soul and gives light to the eyes;he grants healing, life, and blessing.


nanIf one sacrifices from what has been wrongfully obtained, the offering is blemished; the gifts of the lawless are not acceptable.


nanUnless they are sent from the Most High as a visitation,do not give your mind to them.


nanFor dreams have deceived many,and those who put their hope in them have failed.


nanWithout such deceptions the law will be fulfilled,and wisdom is made perfect in truthful lips.


nanAn educated man knows many things,and one with much experience will speak with understanding.

6. Philo of Alexandria, On The Life of Abraham, 65 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

65. Some men also, being engaged in traffic, do out of desire for gain sail over the sea, or being employed in some embassy, or being led by a desire to see the sights of foreign countries, or by a love for instruction, having various motives which attract them outwards and prevent their remaining where they are, some being led by a love of gain, others by the idea of being able to benefit their native city at its time of need in the most necessary and important particulars, others seeking to arrive at the knowledge of matters of which before they were ignorant, a knowledge which brings, at the same time, both delight and advantage to the soul. For men who have never travelled are to those who have, as blind men are to those who see clearly, are nevertheless anxious to behold their father's threshold and to salute it, and to embrace their acquaintances, and to enjoy the most delightful and wished-for sight of their relations and friends; and very often, seeing the affairs, for the sake of which they left their country, protracted, they have abandoned them, being influenced by that most powerful feeling of longing for a union with their kindred.
