Sirach 4

1   My child, do not cheat the poor of their living,
      and do not keep needy eyes waiting.
2    Do not grieve the hungry,
      or anger one in need.
3    Do not add to the troubles of the desperate,
      or delay giving to the needy.
4    Do not reject a suppliant in distress,
      or turn your face away from the poor.
5    Do not avert your eye from the needy,
      and give no one reason to curse you;
6    for if in bitterness of soul some should curse you,
      their Creator will hear their prayer.

7    Endear yourself to the congregation;
      bow your head low to the great.
8    Give a hearing to the poor,
      and return their greeting politely.
9    Rescue the oppressed from the oppressor;
      and do not be hesitant in giving a verdict.
10   Be a father to orphans,
      and be like a husband to their mother;
     you will then be like a son of the Most High,
      and he will love you more than does your mother.
