Sirach 27:30-28:7

Anger and Vengeance


30 Anger and wrath, these also are abominations,
   yet a sinner holds on to them.

28The vengeful will face the Lord’s vengeance,
   for he keeps a strict account of* their sins.
2 Forgive your neighbour the wrong he has done,
   and then your sins will be pardoned when you pray.
3 Does anyone harbour anger against another,
   and expect healing from the Lord?
4 If someone has no mercy towards another like himself,
   can he then seek pardon for his own sins?
5 If a mere mortal harbours wrath,
   who will make an atoning sacrifice for his sins?
6 Remember the end of your life, and set enmity aside;
   remember corruption and death, and be true to the commandments.
7 Remember the commandments, and do not be angry with your neighbour;
   remember the covenant of the Most High, and overlook faults.
