Ben Sira 2:1-6

1 My child, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for testing.
2 Set your heart right and be steadfast, and do not be impetuous in time of calamity.
3 Cling to him and do not depart, so that your last days may be prosperous.
4 Accept whatever befalls you, and in times of humiliation be patient.
5 For gold is tested in the fire, and those found acceptable, in the furnace of humiliation.
6 Trust in him, and he will help you; make your ways straight, and hope in him.
