Ben Sira 35:1-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
1 To keep the law is to make many offerings;
2 whoever observes the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.
3 By works of charity one offers fine flour,
4 and one who gives alms presents a sacrifice of praise.
5 To refrain from evil pleases the Lord,
and to avoid injustice is atonement.
