Sirach 34:26
Whoever takes away a neighbor’s living commits murder,
He that taketh away the bread gotten by sweat, is like him that killeth his neighbour.
If you fast because of your sins, and then go out and commit the same sins over again, what have you gained by going without food? Who do you think is going to listen to your prayers?
To take away a neighbor’s living is to commit murder;
To take away a neighbor’s living is to commit murder;
To take away a neighbour’s living is to commit murder;
To take away a neighbour’s living is to commit murder;
To take away a neighbor’s living is to commit murder;
So if a man fasts for his sins, and goes again and does the same things, who will listen to his prayer? And what has he gained by humbling himself?
So if a man fasts for his sins, and goes again and does the same things, who will listen to his prayer? And what has he gained by humbling himself?
So a man that fasteth in his sins, and again doing the same sins, what profiteth he in meeking himself? who shall hear his prayer?
