Sirach Chapter 4 Vs 1-10

1My child, do not mock the life of the poor;

do not keep needy eyes* waiting.a

2Do not grieve the hungry,

nor anger the needy.

3Do not aggravate a heart already angry,

nor delay giving to the needy.

4A beggar’s request do not reject;

do not turn your face away from the poor.

5From the needy do not turn your eyes;

do not give them reason to curse you.

6If in their pain they cry out bitterly,

their Rock will hear the sound of their cry.

SOCIAL CONDUCT

7Endear yourself to the assembly;

before the city’s ruler bow your head.

8Give a hearing to the poor,

and return their greeting with deference;

9Deliver the oppressed from their oppressors;b

right judgment should not be repugnant to you.

10Be like a father to orphans,

and take the place of a husband to widows.

Then God will call you his child,

and he will be merciful to you and deliver you from the pit.
