Ben Sira 48:15-16 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
15 Despite all this the people did not repent,
nor did they give up their sins,
Until they were uprooted from their land
and scattered all over the earth.
But Judah remained, a tiny people,
with its ruler from the house of David.
16 Some of them did what was right,
but others were extremely sinful.
