Sirach 40:26
Money and strength will lift up one’s heart, but fearing the Lord is better than both. If you fear the Lord, you’ll lack nothing; if you have it, there’s no reason to look for help.
Riches and strength lift up the heart: but above these is the fear of the Lord.
Wealth and strength give confidence, but the fear of the Lord can give you even greater confidence. When you fear the Lord you need nothing more; it is all the support you need.
Wealth and vigor make the heart exult, but better than either, fear of God. In the fear of the Lord there is no want; whoever has it need seek no other support.
Riches and strength build up confidence, but the fear of the Lord is better than either. There is no want in the fear of the Lord, and with it there is no need to seek for help.

Riches and strength lift up the heart, but the fear of the Lord is better than both. There is no loss in the fear of the Lord, and with it there is no need to seek for help.
Riches and virtues enhance the heart; and (or but) the dread of the Lord (is) more than this. Making less is not in the dread of the Lord; and in that dread it is not to seek help. [Faculties and virtues enhance the heart; and over these the dread of the Lord. There is not in the dread of the Lord less(en)ing; and there is not in it to seek help.]
