Sirach 10:25
Free people will serve the wise person who has been enslaved, and a knowledgeable person won’t complain.
The fear of God is the glory of the rich, and of the honourable, and of the poor:
A slave who is wise will have free citizens serving him; and if they are sensible, they will not resent it.
When the free serve a wise slave, the wise will not complain.
Free citizens will serve a wise servant, and an intelligent person will not complain.
Free citizens will serve a wise servant, and an intelligent person will not complain.
Free citizens will serve a wise servant, and an intelligent person will not complain.
Free citizens will serve a wise servant, and an intelligent person will not complain.
Free men will be at the service of a wise servant, and a man of understanding will not grumble.
Free men will be at the service of a wise servant, and a man of understanding will not grumble.
Free children serve a witty (or a witting) servant; and a prudent man and learned shall not grudge (or grumble), when he is blamed, and an uncunning, (or an unknowing, or an ignorant) man shall not be honored. [To the servant well feeling (or perceiving) shall serve free men; and a man prudent and learned shall not grudge chastised, and the uncunning shall not be worshipped.]
