Sirach 4:5
Don’t turn your eyes away from someone begging, and don’t give anyone an opportunity to curse you.
Turn not away thy eyes from the poor for fear of anger: and leave not to them that ask of thee to curse thee behind thy back.
Don't refuse to help a beggar who is in distress. Don't turn your back on a poor person or give him any reason to curse you.
From the needy do not turn your eyes; do not give them reason to curse you.
Do not avert your eye from the needy, and give no one reason to curse you;
Do not avert your eye from the needy, and give no one reason to curse you;
Do not avert your eye from the needy, and give no one reason to curse you;
Do not avert your eye from the needy, and give no one reason to curse you;
Do not avert your eye from the needy, nor give a man occasion to curse you;
Do not avert your eye from the needy, nor give a man occasion to curse you;
Turn not away thine eyes from a poor man for ire, and give not occasion to men asking to curse thee (from) behind. [From the helpless not turn thou away thine eyes for wrath, and leave thou not, or give thou not cause, to men seeking to curse behind to thee.]
