Ben Sira 7:1-6

1 If you do no wrong, no wrong will ever come to you.
3 Do not plow the ground to plant seeds of injustice; you may reap a bigger harvest than you expect.
4 Don't ask the Lord for a place of honor or ask the king for an important position.
5 Don't try to convince the Lord that you are righteous or make a show of your wisdom before the king.
6 Don't set your heart on being a judge, unless you have the strength of character it takes to put an end to injustice. If you let yourself be influenced by someone in a position of power, your integrity will be damaged.
