Sinners (Sir 7:8-7:10)

“Do not commit a sin twice!

Not even for one,

Will you go unpunished.

Do not say,

‘He will consider the multitude of my gifts.

When I make an offering

To the Most High God,

He will accept it.’

Do not grow weary when you pray.

Do not neglect to give alms.”

This is a warning for sinners, especially repeat sinners. You will be punished, even for one sin. Do not say that you are so talented that God will accept your offering, no matter what. Do not grow weary when you pray or stop giving to the poor.
