Ben Sira 41:7-17

7 The children will put the blame for their disgrace on their ungodly parents.
8 You are doomed, you irreligious people who have abandoned the Law of the Most High God.
9 When you have children, disaster will strike them and you will be left with nothing but sorrow. There will be great joy whenever you stumble, and even after your death you will be cursed.
10 What comes into being from nothing will return to nothing; so it will be with the godless, doomed to extinction.
11 A person's body amounts to nothing, but a good reputation will last forever.
12 Protect your reputation; it will outlive you and last longer than a thousand treasures of gold.
13 A good life lasts only so long, but a good reputation will last forever.
14 My children, do as I teach you and live at peace. Wisdom that is not expressed is like a treasure that has been hidden - both are useless.
15 A person who covers up his foolishness is better than one who keeps his wisdom to himself.
16 My children, listen and I will teach you the circumstances when it is proper to be ashamed. Sometimes it is entirely out of place.
17 Before your parents, be ashamed of immoral behavior. Before a ruler or an important person, be ashamed of a lie.
