Sirach 39:5-8 Common English Bible (CEB)
5 They will commit themselves to rise early,
to seek the Lord who made them,
and to pray to the Most High.
They will open their mouth in prayer
and ask forgiveness for their sins.
6 If the great Lord is willing,
they will be filled
with a spirit of understanding;
they will pour forth words of wisdom,
and they will give thanks
to the Lord in prayer.
7 Their reasoning and knowledge
will remain on course,
and they will ponder God’s mysteries.
8 They will bring to light
the learning of their instruction,
and they will make the laws
of the Lord’s covenant their boast.
