This oracle of Yahweh came to Zechariah. Yahweh of hosts told him to tell the people that they should render true justice in the land, since they should show kindness and mercy toward each other. They were not to oppress the widows, the orphans, the aliens, and the poor people. They should not devise evil in their hearts against each other. This is good old be kind and nice to each other.
Once again, Sirach has linked everything to the fear of God. Anyone who is seeking God must accept God’s discipline. You have to get up early to seek God. You should seek the law and be filled with it. The law, of course, means the commandments of God. You should not be a hypocrite who stumbles around. If you fear the Lord, you will make true judgments that will end up with righteous deeds that kindle a light like a fire. The sinner does not like to be reprimanded. The sinner likes only the decisions that fit his way of thinking.
