Ben Sira 7:32-35 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

32 To the poor also extend your hand,
    that your blessing may be complete.
33 Give your gift to all the living,
    and do not withhold your kindness from the dead.[a]
34 Do not avoid those who weep,
    but mourn with those who mourn.
35 Do not hesitate to visit the sick,
    because for such things you will be loved.


  1. 7:33 This seems to refer to the observances ordained toward the dead, that is, proper mourning and burial. Cf. 2 Sm 21:12–14; Tb 1:17–18; 12:12.
