Sirach 39:34
It’s not for us to say, “This is worse than that,” since everything will prove its worth at the proper moment.
In the time of destruction they shall pour out their force: and they shall appease the wrath of him that made them.
No one can claim that some things are worse than others, for everything is good in its proper place.
There is no cause then to say: “This is not as good as that”; for each shows its worth at the proper time.
No one can say, “This is not as good as that,” for everything proves good in its appointed time.
No one can say, ‘This is not as good as that’, for everything proves good in its appointed time.
No one can say, ‘This is not as good as that’, for everything proves good in its appointed time.
No one can say, “This is not as good as that,” for everything proves good in its appointed time.
And no one can say, “This is worse than that,” for all things will prove good in their season.
And no one can say, “This is worse than that,” for all things will prove good in their season.
It is not to say, This is worse than that; for why all things shall be (ap)proved in their time [or forsooth all things in their time shall be (ap)proved].
