Sirach 23:16
Two types of people multiply sins, and a third will bring wrath. A hot temperament that burns like fire will never be quenched until it is spent. People who are promiscuous with their kin will never stop until the fire burns out.
For from the merciful all these things shall be taken away, and they shall not wallow in sins.

Two types of people multiply sins, and a third draws down wrath: Burning passion is like a blazing fire, not to be quenched till it burns itself out; One unchaste with his kindred never stops until fire breaks forth.
Two kinds of individuals multiply sins, and a third incurs wrath. Hot passion that blazes like a fire will not be quenched until it burns itself out; one who commits fornication with his near of kin will never cease until the fire burns him up.
