Sirach 10 Vs 1-18

Good News Translation (GNT)

10 A wise ruler will educate his people, and his government will be orderly. All the officials and all the citizens will be like their ruler. An uneducated king will ruin his people, but a government will grow strong if its rulers are wise. The Lord sees to the government of the world and brings the right person to power at the right time. The success of that person is in the Lord’s hands. The Lord is the source of the honor given to any official.

Don’t be angry with someone for every little thing he does wrong. Don’t do anything out of injured pride. Arrogance and injustice are hated by both the Lord and people.Injustice, arrogance, and wealth cause nations to fall from power, and others then rise to take their placeWe are only dust and ashes; what have we got to be proud of Our body decays even while we are alive.[a]10 A long illness puzzles the doctor.[b] Even a king may be alive today and dead tomorrow.11 When a person dies, all he then possesses is worms, flies, and maggots.

12 Pride has its beginning when a person abandons the Lord, his maker. 13 Pride is like a fountain pouring out sin, and whoever persists in it will be full of wickedness. That is why the Lord brought terrible punishments on some people and completely destroyed them. 14 The Lord has overthrown kings and put humbler people in their place. 15 The Lord has pulled up nations by the roots and established humbler ones in their place. 16 The Lord has overthrown empires and completely devastated their lands. 17 He destroyed some so completely that they are not even remembered any more. 18 The Creator never intended for human beings to be arrogant and violent.
