3 My soul hates three kinds of things; and I am greatly distressed over their souls
Sir25:2 Three sorts of men my soul hateth, and I am greatly offended at their life: a poor man that is proud, a rich man that is a liar, and an old adulterer that doateth.
4 an arrogant pauper, a wealthy liar, a foolish and senseless elder.
5 The things that you have not obtained in your youth, how will you find them in your old age?
Sir25:3 If thou hast gathered nothing in thy youth, how canst thou find any thing in thine age?
6 How beautiful it is for a grey head to have judgment, and for elders to know counsel!
Sir25:4 O how comely a thing is judgement for gray hairs, and for ancient men to know counsel!
