Sadness (Sir 26:28-26:28)

“At two things,

My heart is grieved.

Because of a third,

Anger comes over me.

The first is

A warrior in want

Through poverty.

The second is

Intelligent men

Who are treated contemptuously.

The third is

A man who turns back

From righteousness to sin.

The Lord will prepare him

For the sword.”

Once again, we have this numerical proverb from Sirach, like in Proverbs. There are 2 things that grieve him, and a 3rd that angers him. He is grieved to see a warrior in poverty and intelligent men treated with contempt. The 3rd thing that really angers him is a righteous man who sins. The Lord will prepare a sword for him.
