Sirach

The stupid and foolish
20
:B:1 There are rebukes which are inopportune
2 Better to rebuke than nurse a grudge. 3 He who recognizes his fault diminishes its consequences.
4 Like a eunuch desiring to violate a girl, such is he who uses force in pretending to be just.
5 One keeps silent and is thought to be wise, the other makes himself hated because of his gossiping.
6 One remains silent because he does not know how to reply
7 The wise man keeps silent until the right moment
8 He who speaks too much makes himself hated
9 Man can turn his troubles to his ad vantage
10 There is a type of generosity which will not reward you and another which will repay you double.
11 One is humiliated for having had honors
12 One buys much with little money
13 The wise man makes himself lovable through his words alone, while the favors of the fool are lost.
14 The fool’s gift is not to your advantage
16 The fool says, “I have no friends, no one welcomes my favors. 17 Those who eat my bread have evil tongues.” How often they will mock him, and by how many!
18 Better to stumble on the ground than to make a slip with the tongue
19 The rough-mannered man is like an indiscreet story that ill-mannered people tell out of time.
20 The proverb told by a fool will fail, since he does not speak it at an appropriate time.
21 One keeps himself from sin because he does not have the means to act
22 One loses his soul out of false shame
24 Lying is a shameful defect in a man
25 Better to be a thief than a liar, yet both are heading for disaster.
26 Habitual lying is detestable
27 The wise man’s words advance his cause
28 He who tills the earth increases his produce
29 Presents and gifts blind a wise man’s eyes
30 Concealed wisdom and hidden treasure: what good are these?
31 The man who conceals his stupidity is better than one who conceals his wisdom.
