Sirach 46:19-20 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)
19 Before the time of his eternal sleep,
Samuel bore witness before the Lord and his anointed:
‘No property, not so much as a pair of shoes,
have I taken from anyone!’
And no one accused him.
20 Even after he had fallen asleep, he prophesied
and made known to the king his death,
and lifted up his voice from the ground
in prophecy, to blot out the wickedness of the people.
