Sirach 26:5
My heart was cautious about three things, and I was fearful in the face of a fourth— slander in a city, the gathering of a mob, and a false accusation— all of these are more miserable than death.
Of three things my heart hath been afraid, and at the fourth my face hath trembled:
There are four things that scare me: vicious rumors spread around town, a gathering mob, false accusations—these are all worse than death.
There are three things I dread, and a fourth which terrifies me: Public slander, the gathering of a mob, and false accusation—all harder to bear than death.
Of three things my heart is frightened, and of a fourth I am in great fear: Slander in the city, the gathering of a mob, and false accusation—all these are worse than death.

Mine heart dreaded of three things, and my face dreaded in (or of) the fourth thing [or Of three things dreaded mine heart, and in (or of) the fourth my face was afeared]. Betraying of a city, and the gathering together of people, that is, in conspiring of the people against the prince, and false challenge; all (these) things (be more) grievous on (or worse than) death.
