Sirach 20:15
They will give a little and reproach a lot, and they will open their mouths like a town crier. Today they will lend and tomorrow ask for it back; such people are hateful.
He will give a few things, and upbraid much: and the opening of his mouth is the kindling of a fire.
He isn't generous with anything but criticism, which he will shout for all the world to hear. If he lends you something today, he'll want it back tomorrow. (Don't you hate people like that?)
He gives little, criticizes often, and opens his mouth like a town crier. He lends today and asks for it tomorrow; such a person is hateful.
He gives little and upbraids much; he opens his mouth like a town crier. Today he lends and tomorrow he asks it back; such a one is hateful to God and humans.

He gives little and upbraids much, he opens his mouth like a herald; today he lends and tomorrow he asks it back; such a one is a hateful man.
He shall give little things, and he shall upbraid many things; and the opening of his mouth is enflaming. Today a man lendeth, and tomorrow he asketh (for it again); and such a man is hateful. [Few things he shall give, and many things he shall upbraid; and the opening of the mouth of him is enflaming. Today lendeth a man, and tomorrow he asketh it by plea; and hateful is such a manner man.]
