Sirach 33:19
Listen to me, you who are great among the people; pay attention, you leaders in the congregation.
Hear me, ye great men, and all ye people, and hearken with your ears, ye rulers of the church.
Never, as long as you live, give anyone power over you—whether son, wife, brother, or friend. Don't give your property to anyone; you might change your mind and have to ask for it back.
Listen to me, leaders of the people; rulers of the congregation, pay heed!
Hear me, you who are great among the people, and you leaders of the congregation, pay heed!
Hear me, you who are great among the people, and you leaders of the congregation, pay heed!
Hear me, you who are great among the people, and you leaders of the congregation, pay heed!
Hear me, you who are great among the people, and you leaders of the congregation, pay heed!
To son or wife, to brother or friend, do not give power over yourself, as long as you live; and do not give your property to another, lest you change your mind and must ask for it.
To son or wife, to brother or friend, do not give power over yourself, as long as you live; and do not give your property to another, lest you change your mind and must ask for it.
Give thou not power over thee in thy life to a son, and to a woman, to a brother, and to a friend; and give thou not thy possession to another man, lest peradventure it repent thee, and thou beseech for those (again). [To son, and wife, brother, and friend, give thou not power upon thee in thy life; and give thou not to another thy possession, lest it repent thee, and thou lowly pray for them (again).]
