Sirach 26:6
Women who are rivals bring heartache and grief, and a tongue-lashing shares it with everyone.
The accusation of a city, and the gathering together of the people:
But a woman jealous of another woman causes heartache and grief; her tongue lashes out at everyone.
A wife jealous of another wife is heartache and mourning; everyone feels the lash of her tongue.
But it is heartache and sorrow when a wife is jealous of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
But it is heartache and sorrow when a wife is jealous of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
But it is heartache and sorrow when a wife is jealous of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
But it is heartache and sorrow when a wife is jealous of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
There is grief of heart and sorrow when a wife is envious of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
There is grief of heart and sorrow when a wife is envious of a rival, and a tongue-lashing makes it known to all.
The sorrow of heart, and mourning, is a jealous woman. In a jealous woman is (a) beating of (the) tongue, and she communeth with all men. [Sorrow of heart, and wailing, a jealous woman. In a jealous woman scourge of tongue, to all communing.]
