The Beautiful Wisdom

One of the reasons I like the Common English Bible is they translated the Deuterocanonical Books. While I am not a regular student of these books, I love having easy access to them, and in such a readable translation.

Sirach is Proverbs all over again, with so much that is very familiar. This is great material for praying, meditation, and spiritual growth.

26 If you want to find Wisdom,
then keep the commandments,
and the Lord will supply her to you in
vast quantities.
27 Fearing the Lord brings
wisdom and education.
He is pleased with faithfulness
and gentleness.
28 Don’t disobey the fear of the Lord,
and don’t approach him
with a divided heart.
(Sirach 1:26-28, CEB)
