Sirach 6:1
Don’t become an enemy instead of a friend. If you get a bad name, you will also inherit shame and reproach, as is the case with the deceitful sinner.
Instead of a friend become not an enemy to thy neighbour: for an evil man shall inherit reproach and shame, so shall every sinner that is envious and double tongued.
and do not be an enemy when you should be a friend. A bad reputation brings you the disgrace that lying sinners deserve.
Do not be a foe instead of a friend. A bad name, disgrace, and dishonor you will inherit. Thus the wicked, the double-tongued!
and do not become an enemy instead of a friend; for a bad name incurs shame and reproach; so it is with the double-tongued sinner.
and do not become an enemy instead of a friend; for a bad name incurs shame and reproach; so it is with the double-tongued sinner.
and do not become an enemy instead of a friend; for a bad name incurs shame and reproach; so it is with the double-tongued sinner.
and do not become an enemy instead of a friend; for a bad name incurs shame and reproach; so it is with the double-tongued sinner.
and do not become an enemy instead of a friend; for a bad name incurs shame and reproach: so fares the double-tongued sinner.
for a bad name incurs shame and reproach: so fares the double-tongued sinner.
Do not thou for a friend (or instead of a friend) be made (an) enemy to thy neighbour; for why an evil man shall inherit upbraiding and despising, and each sinner envious and double-tongued. [Do thou not be made for a friend (an) enemy to thy neighbour; reproof forsooth and strife the evil man shall heritage, and each sinner envious and twisel-tongued.]
