Sirach 10:31
Whoever is honored in poverty, how much more will he or she be honored in wealth? And whoever is disreputable in wealth, how much more will he or she be disreputable in poverty?
My son, keep thy soul in meekness, and give it honour according to its desert.
If someone is honored while he is poor, think how much he will be honored if he becomes rich! If someone is despised while he is rich, think how much more he will be despised if he becomes poor!
Honored in poverty, how much more so in wealth! Disgraced in wealth, in poverty how much the more!
One who is honored in poverty, how much more in wealth! And one dishonored in wealth, how much more in poverty!
One who is honoured in poverty, how much more in wealth! And one dishonoured in wealth, how much more in poverty!
One who is honoured in poverty, how much more in wealth! And one dishonoured in wealth, how much more in poverty!
One who is honored in poverty, how much more in wealth! And one dishonored in wealth, how much more in poverty!
A man honored in poverty, how much more in wealth! And a man dishonored in wealth, how much more in poverty!
A man honored in poverty, how much more in wealth! And a man dishonored in wealth, how much more in poverty!
Forsooth if a man hath glory in poverty, how much more in chattel? and he that hath glory in chattel, dread poverty. [Who forsooth glorieth in poorness, how much more in substance? and who glorieth in substance, poorness shameth.]
