Ecclesiasticus is a book of the Apocrypha included by some churches in the Bible. (Not to be confused with Ecclesiastes.)


  • He that diggeth a pit, shall fall into it: and he that setteth a stone for his neighbour, shall stumble upon it: and he that layeth a snare for another, shall perish in it.
    • xxvii
  • Weep bitterly over the dead, for he is worthy, and then comfort thyself; drive heaviness away: thou shall not do him good, but hurt thyself.
    • xxxviii
  • The wisdom of a scribe cometh by his time of leisure: and he that is less in action, shall receive wisdom.
    • xxxviii
