Ben Sira 34:21-23 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

True Worship of God[a]

21 Ill-gotten goods offered in sacrifice are tainted.
22     Presents from the lawless do not win God’s favor.
23 The Most High is not pleased with the gifts of the godless,
    nor for their many sacrifices does he forgive their sins.

Footnotes:

  1. 34:21–31 To be acts of true religion, sacrifice and penance must be accompanied by the proper moral dispositions. To offer to God goods taken from the poor (vv. 21–27), or to practice penance without interior reform, is a mockery, worthless in the sight of God (vv. 28–31). Cf. Mt 15:4–7; Mk 7:9–13.
