[A Prayer of Jesus the son of Sirach.]
Sir 51:29 Let your soul rejoice in his mercy, and be not ashamed of his praise.
Sir 51:27 Behold with your eyes, how that I have but little labour, and
have gotten unto me much rest.
Sir 51:24 Wherefore are ye slow, and what say ye to these things,
seeing your souls are very thirsty?
Sir 51:26 Put your neck under the yoke, and let your soul receive
instruction: she is hard at hand to find.
Sir 51:23 Draw near unto me, ye unlearned, and dwell in the house of learning.
Sir 51:22 The Lord hath given me a tongue for my reward,
and I will praise him therewith.
Sir 51:17 I profited therein, therefore will I ascribe glory unto him
that giveth me wisdom.
Sir 51:25 I opened my mouth, and said, Buy her for yourselves without money.
Sir 51:28 Get learning with a great sum of money, and get much gold by her.
Sir 51:30 Work your work betimes, and in his time he will give you your reward.
Sir 51:13 When I was yet young, or ever I went abroad, I desired wisdom
openly in my prayer.
Sir 51:20 I directed my soul unto her, and I found her in pureness:
I have had my heart joined with her from the beginning,
therefore shall I not be foresaken.
Sir 51:16 I bowed down mine ear a little, and received her, and gat
Sir 51:18 For I purposed to do after her, and earnestly I followed that
which is good; so shall I not be confounded.
Sir 51:15 Even from the flower till the grape was ripe hath my heart
delighted in her: my foot went the right way, from my youth up
sought I after her.
Sir 51:19 My soul hath wrestled with her, and in my doings I was exact:
I stretched forth my hands to the heaven above,
and bewailed my ignorances of her.
Sir 51:14 I prayed for her before the temple, and will seek her out
even to the end.
Sir 51:21 My heart was troubled in seeking her: therefore have I gotten
a good possession.
Sir 51:11 I will praise thy name continually, and will sing praises
with thanksgiving; and so my prayer was heard:
Sir 51:12 For thou savedst me from destruction, and deliveredst me from
the evil time: therefore will I give thanks, and praise thee,
and bless they name, O Lord.
Sir 51:9 Then lifted I up my supplications from the earth, and prayed
for deliverance from death.
Sir 51:5 From the depth of the belly of hell, from an unclean tongue,
and from lying words.
Sir 51:10 I called upon the Lord, the Father of my Lord, that he would
not leave me in the days of my trouble, and in the time of the
proud, when there was no help.
Sir 51:1 I will thank thee, O Lord and King, and praise thee, O God my
Saviour: I do give praise unto thy name:
Sir 51:2 For thou art my defender and helper, and has preserved my
body from destruction, and from the snare of the slanderous
tongue, and from the lips that forge lies, and has been mine
helper against mine adversaries:
Sir 51:3 And hast delivered me, according to the multitude of they
mercies and greatness of thy name, from the teeth of them that
were ready to devour me, and out of the hands of such as sought
after my life, and from the manifold afflictions which I had;
Sir 51:4 From the choking of fire on every side, and from the midst of
the fire which I kindled not;
Sir 51:6 By an accusation to the king from an unrighteous tongue my
soul drew near even unto death, my life was near to the hell
Sir 51:7 They compassed me on every side, and there was no man to help
me: I looked for the succour of men, but there was none.
Sir 51:8 Then thought I upon thy mercy, O Lord, and upon thy acts of
old, how thou deliverest such as wait for thee, and savest them
out of the hands of the enemies.Sirach 50
Sir 50:28 Blessed is he that shall be exercised in these things; and he
that layeth them up in his heart shall become wise.
Sir 50:29 For if he do them, he shall be strong to all things: for the
light of the Lord leadeth him, who giveth wisdom to the godly.
Blessed be the name of the Lord for ever. Amen, Amen.
Sir 50:23 He grant us joyfulness of heart, and that peace may be in our
days in Israel for ever:
Sir 50:7 As the sun shining upon the temple of the most High, and as
the rainbow giving light in the bright clouds:
Sir 50:6 He was as the morning star in the midst of a cloud, and as
the moon at the full:
Sir 50:9 As fire and incense in the censer, and as a vessel of beaten
gold set with all manner of precious stones:
Sir 50:8 And as the flower of roses in the spring of the year, as
lilies by the rivers of waters, and as the branches of the
frankincense tree in the time of summer:
Sir 50:10 And as a fair olive tree budding forth fruit, and as a
cypress tree which groweth up to the clouds.
Sir 50:22 Now therefore bless ye the God of all, which only doeth
wondrous things every where, which exalteth our days from the
womb, and dealeth with us according to his mercy.
Sir 50:1 Simon the high priest, the son of Onias, who in his life
repaired the house again, and in his days fortified the temple:
Sir 50:2 And by him was built from the foundation the double height,
the high fortress of the wall about the temple:
Sir 50:4 He took care of the temple that it should not fall, and
fortified the city against besieging:
Sir 50:5 How was he honoured in the midst of the people in his coming
out of the sanctuary!
Sir 50:3 In his days the cistern to receive water, being in compass as
the sea, was covered with plates of brass:
Sir 50:13 So were all the sons of Aaron in their glory, and the
oblations of the Lord in their hands, before all the
congregation of Israel.
Sir 50:11 When he put on the robe of honour, and was clothed with the
perfection of glory, when he went up to the holy altar, he made
the garment of holiness honourable.
Sir 50:12 When he took the portions out of the priests' hands, he
himself stood by the hearth of the altar, compassed about, as a
young cedar in Libanus; and as palm trees compassed they him
Sir 50:14 And finishing the service at the altar, that he might adorn
the offering of the most high Almighty,
Sir 50:15 He stretched out his hand to the cup, and poured of the blood
of the grape, he poured out at the foot of the altar a
sweetsmelling savour unto the most high King of all.
Sir 50:17 Then all the people together hasted, and fell down to the
earth upon their faces to worship their Lord God Almighty, the
Sir 50:16 Then shouted the sons of Aaron, and sounded the silver
trumpets, and made a great noise to be heard, for a remembrance
before the most High.
Sir 50:18 The singers also sang praises with their voices, with great
variety of sounds was there made sweet melody.
Sir 50:20 Then he went down, and lifted up his hands over the whole
congregation of the children of Israel, to give the blessing of
the Lord with his lips, and to rejoice in his name.
Sir 50:21 And they bowed themselves down to worship the second time,
that they might receive a blessing from the most High.
Sir 50:24 That he would confirm his mercy with us, and deliver us at
Sir 50:19 And the people besought the Lord, the most High, by prayer
before him that is merciful, till the solemnity of the Lord was
ended, and they had finished his service.
Sir 50:27 Jesus the son of Sirach of Jerusalem hath written in this
book the instruction of understanding and knowledge, who out of
his heart poured forth wisdom.
Sir 50:25 There be two manner of nations which my heart abhorreth, and
the third is no nation:
Sir 50:26 They that sit upon the mountain of Samaria, and they that
dwell among the Philistines, and that foolish people that dwell
in Sichem.Sirach 49
Sir 49:16 Sem and Seth were in great honour among men, and so was Adam
above every living thing in creation.
Sir 49:14 But upon the earth was no man created like Enoch; for he was
taken from the earth.
Sir 49:10 And of the twelve prophets let the memorial be blessed, and
let their bones flourish again out of their place: for they
comforted Jacob, and delivered them by assured hope.
Sir 49:15 Neither was there a young man born like Joseph, a governor of
his brethren, a stay of the people, whose bones were regarded of
Sir 49:9 For he made mention of the enemies under the figure of the
rain, and directed them that went right.
Sir 49:13 And among the elect was Neemias, whose renown is great, who
raised up for us the walls that were fallen, and set up the
gates and the bars, and raised up our ruins again.
Sir 49:11 How shall we magnify Zorobabel? even he was as a signet on
the right hand:
Sir 49:12 So was Jesus the son of Josedec: who in their time builded
the house, and set up an holy temple to the Lord, which was
prepared for everlasting glory.
Sir 49:2 He behaved himself uprightly in the conversion of the people,
and took away the abominations of iniquity.
Sir 49:8 It was Ezekiel who saw the glorious vision, which was shewed
him upon the chariot of the cherubims.
Sir 49:1 The remembrance of Josias is like the composition of the
perfume that is made by the art of the apothecary: it is sweet
as honey in all mouths, and as musick at a banquet of wine.
Sir 49:3 He directed his heart unto the Lord, and in the time of the
ungodly he established the worship of God.
Sir 49:4 All, except David and Ezekias and Josias, were defective: for
they forsook the law of the most High, even the kings of Juda
Sir 49:6 They burnt the chosen city of the sanctuary, and made the
streets desolate, according to the prophecy of Jeremias.
Sir 49:5 Therefore he gave their power unto others, and their glory to
a strange nation.
Sir 49:7 For they entreated him evil, who nevertheless was a prophet,
sanctified in his mother's womb, that he might root out, and
afflict, and destroy; and that he might build up also, and
There is a grand conclusion being presented here, much like we have seen in Ezekiel. The grand conclusion in Sirach 51 the verse that deals with "fire". Insinuates that being "lukewarm" can be representative or is, of the ascension. Regardless of tone, the book of revelation by contextual association connects the Church to "lukewarm", therefore we have our conclusion. The ascension of man was being denoted in the book of revelations.I will remind the religious community:
Those of you left standing, to cooperating with the extraterrestrials and with my agendas, which are your agendas. Love thy neighbor as thyself and love god above all others. Love God's Plan for mankind, and do not question my authority. Once again, I will resolve all ... ... certain conflicts that involves or challenges my authority in certain countries with euthanasia, no explanation, no negotiation, just euthanasia. I have the goals of the universe to fulfill, by degree which are your goals.
