Hymn of praise (Sir 15:9-15:10)

“A hymn of praise is unseemly

On the lips of a sinner.

It has not been sent

From the Lord.

A hymn of praise should be

Uttered in wisdom.

The Lord will make it prosper.”

A sinner should not sing a hymn of praise because it has not been sent by the Lord. Those with wisdom should utter a hymn of praise. The Lord will make them prosper.
