Sirach 26:28
My heart has been saddened by two things, and I was made angry because of a third: a warrior who is needy and impoverished, intelligent people who are treated with contempt, and people who are turned from righteousness to sin— the Lord will prepare them for the sword.
Two sorts of callings have appeared to me hard and dangerous: a merchant is hardly free from negligence: and a huckster shall not be justified from the sins of the lips.
There are two things that make me sad, and a third that makes me angry: a soldier who has become poor, intelligent people who are not respected, and a righteous person who turns to evil.
Two things bring grief to my heart, and a third arouses my anger: The wealthy reduced to want, the intelligent held in contempt, And those who pass from righteousness to sin— the Lord prepares them for the sword.
At two things my heart is grieved, and because of a third anger comes over me: a warrior in want through poverty, intelligent men who are treated contemptuously, and a man who turns back from righteousness to sin— the Lord will prepare him for the sword!

In two things mine heart was made sorry, and in the third thing wrathfulness came to me. A man warrior failing by neediness, and a wise man despised. And God hath made him ready to (or for) the sword, that passeth over from rightfulness to sin. [In two things mine heart is made sorrowful, and in the third wrathing to me came. A man fighter failing by mis-ease, and a man well feeling, or perceiving, despised. And that over-goeth from rightwiseness to sin, God prepared him to (or for) a two-biting sword.]
