Sirach 30:4
When their father passes away, it is as if he hadn’t died, because he left behind sons who are like him.
His father is dead, and he is as if he were not dead: for he hath left one behind him that is like himself.
While the father is alive, the sight of his son makes him happy, and when he dies, he has no regrets. He is not really dead, because his son is like him.
At the father’s death, he will seem not dead, for he leaves after him one like himself,
When the father dies he will not seem to be dead, for he has left behind him one like himself,
When the father dies he will not seem to be dead, for he has left behind him one like himself,
When the father dies he will not seem to be dead, for he has left behind him one like himself,
When the father dies he will not seem to be dead, for he has left behind him one like himself,
The father may die, and yet he is not dead, for he has left behind him one like himself;
The father may die, and yet he is not dead, for he has left behind him one like himself;
(And though) The father of him is dead, and (yet) he is as not dead; for he hath left after him a son like him. [Dead is the father of him, and he is as not dead; like forsooth to him he hath left after him.]
