Ben Sira 26:5-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

There are three things I dread,
    and a fourth which terrifies me:
Public slander, the gathering of a mob,
    and false accusation—all harder to bear than death.
A wife jealous of another wife is heartache and mourning;[a]
    everyone feels the lash of her tongue.


  1. 26:6–12 A repetition of the thought expressed in 25:13–26.
