Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 4.1-4.10


nanMy son, deprive not the poor of his living,and do not keep needy eyes waiting.


nanBe like a father to orphans,and instead of a husband to their mother;you will then be like a son of the Most High,and he will love you more than does your mother.
NaN


nanDo not grieve the one who is hungry,nor anger a man in want.


nanObserve the right time, and beware of evil;and do not bring shame on yourself.


nanDo not add to the troubles of an angry mind,nor delay your gift to a beggar.


nanDo not be like a lion in your home,nor be a faultfinder with your servants.


nanDo not reject an afflicted suppliant,nor turn your face away from the poor.


nanDo not avert your eye from the needy,nor give a man occasion to curse you;


nanfor if in bitterness of soul he calls down a curse upon you,his Creator will hear his prayer.


nanMake yourself beloved in the congregation;bow your head low to a great man.


nanIncline your ear to the poor,and answer him peaceably and gently.


nanDeliver him who is wronged from the hand of the wrongdoer;and do not be fainthearted in judging a case.
