The heart (Sir 13:25-13:26)

“The heart changes the countenance,

Either for good or for evil.

The sign of a happy heart

Is a cheerful face.

Devising proverbs

Requires painful thinking.”

If you look at someone, you can tell whether they have a happy heart. The heart has an effect on how you look, whether for good or evil. A cheerful face is a sign of a happy heart. If you have a painful face, it may be than you are trying to formulate proverbs, like our friend Sirach. He may not have had a happy face.
