Ecclesiasticus 2:10-17


10 Consider the generations of old and see:
   has anyone trusted in the Lord and been disappointed?
Or has anyone persevered in the fear of the Lord* and been forsaken?
   Or has anyone called upon him and been neglected?
11 For the Lord is compassionate and merciful;
   he forgives sins and saves in time of distress.


12 Woe to timid hearts and to slack hands,
   and to the sinner who walks a double path!
13 Woe to the faint-hearted who have no trust!
   Therefore they will have no shelter.
14 Woe to you who have lost your nerve!
   What will you do when the Lord’s reckoning comes?


15 Those who fear the Lord do not disobey his words,
   and those who love him keep his ways.
16 Those who fear the Lord seek to please him,
   and those who love him are filled with his law.
17 Those who fear the Lord prepare their hearts,
   and humble themselves before him.
