Sirach 39:24
For the godly, his paths are straight, but for the lawless, there are obstacles.
The works of all flesh are before him, and there is nothing hid from his eyes.
For the devout, his ways are straight; for the wicked, they are laid with traps.
For the virtuous his paths are level, to the haughty they are clogged with stones.
To the faithful his ways are straight, but full of pitfalls for the wicked.
To the faithful his ways are straight, but full of pitfalls for the wicked.
To the faithful his ways are straight, but full of pitfalls for the wicked.
To the faithful his ways are straight, but full of pitfalls for the wicked.
To the holy his ways are straight, just as they are obstacles to the wicked.
To the holy his ways are straight, just as they are obstacles to the wicked.
As he turned waters into drynesses, and the earth was dried, and his ways were (ad)dressed (or directed) to the ways of them; so offensions (or stumbling blocks) in his ire be (ad)dressed (or directed) to sinners. [What manner he turned waters into drought, and the earth is dried, and the ways of it to the ways of them be forth straight; so to sinners offensions in the wrath of him.]
