Sirach 12:3
There is nothing good for those who continue to do evil or for those who don’t freely offer charity.
For there is no good for him that is always occupied in evil, and that giveth no alms: for the Highest hateth sinners, and hath mercy on the penitent.
No good ever comes to a person who gives comfort to the wicked; it is not a righteous act.
No good comes to those who give comfort to the wicked, nor is it an act of mercy that they do.
No good comes to one who persists in evil or to one who does not give alms.
No good comes to one who persists in evil or to one who does not give alms.

No good will come to the man who persists in evil or to him who does not give alms.
It is not well to him that is customable in evils, and to him that giveth not alms; for why the Highest both hateth sinners, and doeth mercy to them that do penance. [It is not well to him that is busy in evils, and to the not giving alms-deeds; for and the Highest to hate hath sinners, and hath mercy to penance-doers.]
