Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 44.1-50.24


nanLet us now praise famous men,and our fathers in their generations.


nanBut these were men of mercy,whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten;
NaN


nantheir prosperity will remain with their descendants,and their inheritance to their childrens children.


nanTheir descendants stand by the covenants;their children also, for their sake.


nanTheir posterity will continue for ever,and their glory will not be blotted out.


nanTheir bodies were buried in peace,and their name lives to all generations.


nanPeoples will declare their wisdom,and the congregation proclaims their praise.


nanEnoch pleased the Lord, and was taken up;he was an example of repentance to all generations.


nanNoah was found perfect and righteous;in the time of wrath he was taken in exchange;therefore a remnant was left to the earth when the flood came.


nanEverlasting covenants were made with him that all flesh should not be blotted out by a flood.


nanAbraham was the great father of a multitude of nations,and no one has been found like him in glory;
NaN


nanTherefore the Lord assured him by an oath that the nations would be blessed through his posterity;that he would multiply him like the dust of the earth,and exalt his posterity like the stars,and cause them to inherit from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth.


nanThe blessing of all men and the covenant he made to rest upon the head of Jacob;he acknowledged him with his blessings,and gave him his inheritance;he determined his portions,and distributed them among twelve tribes.


nanThere were those who ruled in their kingdoms,and were men renowned for their power,giving counsel by their understanding,and proclaiming prophecies;


nanleaders of the people in their deliberations and in understanding of learning for the people,wise in their words of instruction;


nanthose who composed musical tunes,and set forth verses in writing;


nanrich men furnished with resources,living peaceably in their habitations --


nanall these were honored in their generations,and were the glory of their times.


nanAnd there are some who have no memorial,who have perished as though they had not lived;they have become as though they had not been born,and so have their children after them.


nanThe Lord apportioned to them great glory,his majesty from the beginning.


nanhe kept the law of the Most High,and was taken into covenant with him;he established the covenant in his flesh,and when he was tested he was found faithful.


nanTo Isaac also he gave the same assurance for the sake of Abraham his father.
NaN


nanThere are some of them who have left a name,so that men declare their praise.
