Ben Sira 44:16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Early Ancestors

16 [Enoch[a] walked with the Lord and was taken,
    that succeeding generations might learn by his example.]


  1. 44:16 Enoch: because of his friendship with God and his unusual disappearance from the earth, this prophet’s renown was great among the chosen people, particularly in the two centuries just before the coming of Christ; cf. Gn 5:21–24; Hb 11:5. The present verse is an expansion of the original text; cf. 49:14.
