Ben Sira 18:15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The Need for Prudence

15 My child, add no reproach to your charity,[a]
    or spoil any gift by harsh words.

Footnotes:

  1. 18:15–27 The practice of charity, especially almsgiving, is an art which avoids every offense to another (vv. 15–18). Prudence directs the changing circumstances of daily life in view of the time of scrutiny (i.e., the day of reckoning, or death, v. 24).
