Sirach 49:1-5

Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

49 The memory of Josias is like the composition of a sweet smell made by the art of a perfumer:

His remembrance shall be sweet as honey in every mouth, and as music at a banquet of wine.

He was directed by God unto the repentance of the nation, and he took away the abominations of wickedness.

And he directed his heart towards the Lord, and in the days of sinners he strengthened godliness.

Except David, and Ezechias, and Josias, all committed sin.
