Follow the law (Sir 32:24-32:24)

“Whoever keeps the law

Preserves himself.

Whoever believes the law,

Heeds the commandments.

Whoever trusts the Lord

Will not suffer loss.”

If you follow the law, you will save yourself. If you believe in the law, you will follow the commandments. If you trust in the Lord, you will not suffer any loss. Here Sirach connects the law, the commandments, and the Lord.
