Ben Sira 26:28 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Dangers to Integrity and Friendship
28 Two things bring grief to my heart,
and a third arouses my anger:
The wealthy reduced to want,
the intelligent held in contempt,
And those who pass from righteousness to sin—
the Lord prepares them for the sword.
