Sirach 47:7 So he glorified him amid ten thousand, and he praised him with the blessings of the Lord, by offering him a crown of glory.

 

Sirach 47:8 For he crushed the enemies on every side, and he eradicated his adversaries, the Philistines, even to this day. He broke their horn, even for all time.

Sirach 47:15 Solomon reigned in days of peace, and God subjected all his enemies to him, so that he might build a house in his name, and prepare a sanctuary for all time. O how well-taught you were in your youth!

 

Sirach 47:16 And you were filled with wisdom like a river, and your mind exposed the world.

 

Sirach 47:17 And you explained mysteries by means of parables. Your name became known to far off islands, and you were beloved for your peace.

 

Sirach 47:18 The earth was in wonder over your canticles, and proverbs, and parables, and interpretations,

 

Sirach 47:19 and over the name of the Lord God, who is known as the God of Israel.

 

Sirach 47:20 You gathered gold like copper, and you multiplied silver like lead.

 

Sirach 47:21 But you bent your thigh to women, and you were held by the power of your body.

Sirach 47:23 so that you would cause the kingdom to be divided, and an obstinate kingdom to rule from Ephraim.

 

Sirach 47:24 But God will not abandon his mercy, nor will he corrupt or abolish his own works. And he will not perish the stock of the descendents of his elect. And he will not destroy the offspring of him who loves the Lord.

Sirach 47:29 and Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, who caused Israel to sin, and who provided a way of sin to Ephraim. And their sins were multiplied exceedingly.

 

Sirach 47:30 They thoroughly turned them away from their own land.
