Ben Sira 6:32-36 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
32 If you wish, my son, you can be wise;
if you apply yourself, you can be shrewd.
33 If you are willing to listen, you can learn;
if you pay attention, you can be instructed.
34 Stand in the company of the elders;
stay close to whoever is wise.
35 Be eager to hear every discourse;
let no insightful saying escape you.
36 If you see the intelligent, seek them out;
let your feet wear away their doorsteps!
