Sirach 28:19
Happy is the person who is protected from the tongue, who hasn’t endured its anger, who hasn’t pulled its yoke or been bound by its shackles.
The tongue of a third person hath cast out valiant women, and deprived them of their labours.
Count yourself lucky if you have been spared the experience of having irresponsible talk directed against you—if you have never had that iron yoke around your neck or those heavy chains on your legs.
Happy the one who is sheltered from it, and has not endured its wrath; Who has not borne its yoke nor been bound with its chains.
Happy is the one who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters.
Happy is one who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters.
Happy is one who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters.
Happy is the one who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters.
Happy is the man who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters;
Happy is the man who is protected from it, who has not been exposed to its anger, who has not borne its yoke, and has not been bound with its fetters;
He is blessed that is covered from a wicked tongue [Blessful or Blissful that is covered from a shrewd (or a depraved) tongue]; and he that passed not in the wrathfulness thereof, and he that drew not the yoke thereof, and was not bound in the bonds thereof.
