Sirach 27:2
A stake is driven between cracks in stones, and sin will be wedged between selling and buying.
As a stake sticketh fast in the midst of the joining of stones, so also in the midst of selling and buying, sin shall stick fast.
It is hard to remove a peg that is stuck between two stones of a house, and it is just as hard to remove dishonesty from buying and selling.
A stake will be driven between fitted stones— sin will be wedged in between buying and selling.
As a stake is driven firmly into a fissure between stones, so sin is wedged in between selling and buying.
As a stake is driven firmly into a fissure between stones, so sin is wedged in between selling and buying.

As a stake is driven firmly into a fissure between stones, so sin is wedged in between selling and buying.
As a stake is driven firmly into a fissure between stones, so sin is wedged in between selling and buying.
As a stake is fastened in the midst of a heap of stones, so and a man shall be anguished by sins betwixt the midst of selling and buying. Trespass shall be all-broken with him that trespasseth. [As in the middle of a joining of stones a pale, or a stake, fixed is, so between the middle of buying and selling he shall be anguished with sins. He shall be treaded with guilting guilt.]
