Sirach 27:21
In the same way that it’s possible to bandage a wound, there’s also reconciliation for insult, but the one who has let a friend’s secrets slip out has no hope.
And as one that letteth a bird go out of his hand, so hast thou let thy neighbour go, and thou shalt not get him again.
Wounds can be bandaged and insults can be forgiven, but if you betray a confidence, it is hopeless.
For a wound can be bandaged, and an insult forgiven, but whoever betrays secrets does hopeless damage.
For a wound may be bandaged, and there is reconciliation after abuse, but whoever has betrayed secrets is without hope.
For a wound may be bandaged, and there is reconciliation after abuse, but whoever has betrayed secrets is without hope.
For a wound may be bandaged, and there is reconciliation after abuse, but whoever has betrayed secrets is without hope.

For a wound may be bandaged, and there is reconciliation after abuse, but whoever has betrayed secrets is without hope.
Thou shalt no more be able to bind him together; but of (or after) evil saying is according. Soothly to show openly the privates (or the secrets) of a friend, is despair of a soul unblessed. [Thou shalt not be able to moreover bind him together; but of the cursed is according together. To make naked forsooth the privates of a friend, is the despairing of the unfaithful soul.]
