Wise companions (Sir 9:14-9:16)

“As much as you can,

Aim to know your neighbors.

Consult with the wise.

Let your conversation be

With intelligent people.

Let all your discussions be

About the law of the Most High.

Let righteous ones be

Your dinner companions.

Let your glory be

In the fear of the Lord.”

You should get to know your neighbors. You should consult with the wise ones. Your conversations should be with intelligent people about the law of God. Your dinner companions should be righteous people. Your glory should be in your fear of the Lord.
