Sirach 26:17
As a lamp shines on the holy lampstand, so also is a beautiful face along with steady maturity.
Her discipline is the gift of God.
Her beautiful face and attractive figure are as lovely as the light from the sacred lampstand in the Temple,
The light which shines above the holy lampstand— a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.
A lantern shining on an holy candlestick, and the fairness of a face on (or in) steadfast age, that is, as such a lantern lighteneth the church, and such a face maketh fair ripe age, so a good woman maketh fair her house. [A shining lantern upon an holy candlestick, and the fairness of the face upon the stable age.]
