Sirach 51:1 The prayer of Jesus, the son of Sirach: I will confess to you, O Lord and King, and I will give praise to you, O God my Saviour.

 

Sirach 51:2 I will acknowledge your name. For you have been my Helper and Protector.

 

Sirach 51:3 And you have freed my body from perdition, from the snare of the iniquitous tongue, and from the lips of those who forge lies. And you have been my Helper in the sight of those who stood nearby.

 

Sirach 51:4 And you have freed me according to the multitude of the mercy of your name: from those who roared and prepared to devour,

 

Sirach 51:5 from the hands of those who sought my life, and from the gates of tribulation that surrounded me,

 

Sirach 51:6 from the oppression of the flames that surrounded me, and so I was not burned in the midst of the fire,

 

Sirach 51:7 from the depths of the bowels of hell, and from the defiled tongue, and from lying words, from an iniquitous king, and from an unjust tongue.

 

Sirach 51:8 My soul shall praise the Lord, even unto death.

 

Sirach 51:9 For my life was drawing near to hell below.

 

Sirach 51:10 And they surrounded me on every side. And there was no one who would help me. I looked around for the assistance of men, and there was none.

 

Sirach 51:11 Then I remembered your mercy, O Lord, and your works, which are from the very beginning.

 

Sirach 51:12 For you rescue those who persevere for you, O Lord, and you free them from the hands of the Gentiles.

 

Sirach 51:13 You exalted my habitation upon the earth, and I made supplication that death would pass away.

 

Sirach 51:14 I called upon the Lord, the Father of my Lord, so that he would not abandon me in the day of my tribulation, nor in the time of arrogance without assistance.

 

Sirach 51:15 I will praise your name unceasingly, and I will praise it with thanksgiving, for my prayer was heeded.

 

Sirach 51:16 And you freed me from perdition, and you rescued me from the time of iniquity.

 

Sirach 51:17 Because of this, I will give thanks and praise to you, and I will bless the name of the Lord.

 

Sirach 51:18 When I was still young, before I wandered astray, I sought wisdom openly in my prayer.

 

Sirach 51:19 I asked for her before the temple, and even to the very end, I will inquire after her. And she flourished like a newly-ripened grape.

 

Sirach 51:20 My heart rejoiced in her. My feet walked in the right path. From my youth, I pursued her.

 

Sirach 51:21 I bent my ear a little and accepted her.

 

Sirach 51:22 I found much wisdom within myself, and I benefited greatly by her. Sirach 51:23 I will give glory to him who gives wisdom to me.

 

Sirach 51:24 For I have decided that I should act according to wisdom. I have been zealous for what is good, and so I will not be confounded.

 

Sirach 51:25 My soul has struggled for wisdom, and in doing so, I have been confirmed.

 

Sirach 51:26 I extended my hands on high, and I mourned my ignorance of her.

 

Sirach 51:27 I directed my soul toward her, and I found her within knowledge.

 

Sirach 51:28 From the beginning, I held my heart to wisdom. Because of this, I will not be forsaken.

 

Sirach 51:29 My stomach was stirred up while seeking her. Because of her, I will hold a good possession.

 

Sirach 51:30 The Lord has given me a tongue as my reward, and I will praise him with it.

 

Sirach 51:31 Draw near to me, you who are untaught, and gather yourselves into the house of discipline.

 

Sirach 51:32 Why are you reluctant? And what do you have to say about these things? Your souls are exceedingly thirsty!

 

Sirach 51:33 I have opened my mouth, and I have spoken. Buy wisdom for yourselves without silver,

 

Sirach 51:34 and subject your neck to her yoke, and let your soul accept her discipline. For she is close enough to be found.

 

Sirach 51:35 See with your own eyes how I have labored only a little, and have found much rest for myself.

 

Sirach 51:36 Take up discipline, as if it were a great sum of money, and possess an abundance of gold in her.

 

Sirach 51:37 Let your soul rejoice in his mercy. For you will not be confounded by his praise.

 

Sirach 51:38 Accomplish your work before the time. And he will give you your reward in his time.
