Sirach 27:19
And as you set a bird free from your hand, so too you have let your neighbors go, and you won’t catch them.
But if thou discover his secrets, follow no more after him.
Your friend is gone. You can no more get him back than you can get a bird to come back to your hand once you let it go.
Like a bird released from your hand, you have let your friend go and cannot recapture him.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbor go, and will not catch him again.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbour go, and will not catch him again.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbour go, and will not catch him again.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbor go, and will not catch him again.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbor go, and will not catch him again.
And as you allow a bird to escape from your hand, so you have let your neighbor go, and will not catch him again.
And as a man that letteth go a bird from his hand [or And as he that letteth (go) a bird out of his hand], so thou that hast forsaken thy neighbour, and thou shalt not take him (or get him again).
