Sirach 10 Calamities

How can dust and ashes be proud?
    Even in life the human body decays.
10 A long illness baffles the physician;
    the king of today will die tomorrow.
11 For when one is dead
    he inherits maggots and vermin and worms.
12 The beginning of human pride is to forsake the Lord;
    the heart has withdrawn from its Maker.
13 For the beginning of pride is sin,
    and the one who clings to it pours out abominations.
Therefore the Lord brings upon them unheard-of calamities,
    and destroys them completely.
