26 Envy and anger will diminish your days, and pensiveness will bring old age before its time.
Sir30:24 Envy and wrath shorten the life, and carefulness bringeth age before the time. At the time when thou shalt end thy days, and finish thy life, distribute thine inheritance. Fodder, a wand, and burdens, are for the ass; and bread, correction, and work, for a servant.
27 A cheerful and good heart is like a feast. And its feasts are formed by diligence.
