Ben Sira 29:10-13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

10 Lose your money for relative or friend;
    do not hide it under a stone to rot.
11 Dispose of your treasure according to the commandments of the Most High,
    and that will profit you more than the gold.
12 [a]Store up almsgiving in your treasury,
    and it will save you from every evil.
13 Better than a mighty shield and a sturdy spear
    it will fight for you against the enemy.


  1. 29:12–13 In Ben Sira’s day, almsgiving and righteousness were practically identified.
