Sirach 7:9
Don’t say, “He will look at the heap of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High, he will accept it.”
Be not fainthearted in thy mind:
Don't think that God Most High is going to take into account how very generous you are and so accept any offering you decide to make.
Do not say, “He will appreciate my many gifts; the Most High God will accept my offerings.”
Do not say, “He will consider the great number of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God, he will accept it.”
Do not say, ‘He will consider the great number of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God, he will accept it.’
Do not say, ‘He will consider the great number of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God, he will accept it.’
Do not say, “He will consider the great number of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God, he will accept it.”
Do not say, “He will consider the multitude of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God he will accept it.”
Do not say, “He will consider the multitude of my gifts, and when I make an offering to the Most High God he will accept it.”
Do not thou be a coward in thy soul, to pray; and despise thou not to do alms-[deeds].
