Sirach 44:23-45:5 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

23     he made to rest on the head of Jacob;
he acknowledged him with his blessings,
    and gave him his inheritance;
he divided his portions,
    and distributed them among twelve tribes.


From his descendants the Lord[a] brought forth a godly man,
    who found favor in the sight of all
45 and was beloved by God and people,
    Moses, whose memory is blessed.
He made him equal in glory to the holy ones,
    and made him great, to the terror of his enemies.
By his words he performed swift miracles;[b]
    the Lord[c] glorified him in the presence of kings.
He gave him commandments for his people,
    and revealed to him his glory.
For his faithfulness and meekness he consecrated him,
    choosing him out of all humankind.
He allowed him to hear his voice,
    and led him into the dark cloud,
and gave him the commandments face to face,
    the law of life and knowledge,
so that he might teach Jacob the covenant,
    and Israel his decrees.
