Always let us avoid the occasions of sins

Curse the gossips and the double-tongued,
    for they destroy the peace of many.(Sirach 28:13)

 

21 its death is an evil death,
    and Hades is preferable to it.
22 It has no power over the godly;
    they will not be burned in its flame.
23 Those who forsake the Lord will fall into its power;
    it will burn among them and will not be put out.
It will be sent out against them like a lion;
    like a leopard it will mangle them. (Sirach 28:21-23)

 

24a As you fence in your property with thorns,
25b     so make a door and a bolt for your mouth.
24b As you lock up your silver and gold,
25a     so make balances and scales for your words.
26 Take care not to err with your tongue,
    and fall victim to one lying in wait. (Sirach 28:24-26)
