Sir 35:1-12

The Law and Sacrifices

35One who keeps the law makes many offerings;
2   one who heeds the commandments makes an offering of well-being.
3 One who returns a kindness offers choice flour,
4   and one who gives alms sacrifices a thank-offering.
5 To keep from wickedness is pleasing to the Lord,
   and to forsake unrighteousness is an atonement.
6 Do not appear before the Lord empty-handed,
7   for all that you offer is in fulfilment of the commandment.
8 The offering of the righteous enriches the altar,
   and its pleasing odour rises before the Most High.
9 The sacrifice of the righteous is acceptable,
   and it will never be forgotten.
10 Be generous when you worship the Lord,
   and do not stint the first fruits of your hands.
11 With every gift show a cheerful face,
   and dedicate your tithe with gladness.
12 Give to the Most High as he has given to you,
   and as generously as you can afford.
