Ben Sira 6:20-22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 She is rough ground to the fool!
    The stupid cannot abide her.
21 She will be like a burdensome stone to them,
    and they will not delay in casting her aside.
22 For discipline[a] is like her name,
    she is not accessible to many.


  1. 6:22 Discipline: musar (in the sense of wisdom) is a perfect homonym for musar, “removed, withdrawn”; thus the path of discipline is not accessible to many.
