Sirach 16:17
Don’t say, “I’ll be hidden from the Lord,” and “Who from on high will call me to mind? Among a great many people, I’ll never be recognized; for what am I in such a vast creation?
In such a multitude I shall not be known: for what is my soul in such an immense creation?
Never say, I will hide from the Lord. Nobody up there is going to give me a thought. How can I be noticed among so many people? The creation is so enormous, what am I worth?
Do not say: “I am hidden from God; and on high who remembers me? Among so many people I am unknown; what am I in the world of spirits?
Do not say, “I am hidden from the Lord, and who from on high has me in mind? Among so many people I am unknown, for what am I in a boundless creation?
Do not say, ‘I am hidden from the Lord, and who from on high has me in mind? Among so many people I am unknown, for what am I in a boundless creation?

Do not say, “I am hidden from the Lord, and who from on high has me in mind? Among so many people I am unknown, for what am I in a boundless creation?

Do not say, “I shall be hidden from the Lord, and who from on high will remember me? Among so many people I shall not be known, for what is my soul in the boundless creation?
Say thou not, I shall be hid from God; and from the highest, that is, heaven, who shall have mind on me? Say thou not, I shall not be known in (such) a great (number of) people; for why which (or what) is my soul in so great a (number of) creature(s)? [or what forsooth is my soul in so great a (number of) creature(s) without measure?]
