Sirach 24:22

Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus

21 Those who eat of me will hunger for more, and those who drink of me will thirst for more. 22 Whoever obeys me will not be put to shame, and those who work with me will not sin." 23 All this is the book of the covenant of the Most High God, the law that Moses commanded us as an inheritance for the congregations of Jacob. 25 It overflows, like the Pishon, with wisdom, and like the Tigris at the time of the first fruits. 26 It runs over, like the Euphrates, with understanding, and like the Jordan at harvest time.

LXX Isaiah 28:16


14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you afflicted men and rulers of this people that is in Ierousalem. 15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with Hades and agreements with death, if a rushing storm passes through, it will not come to us; we have made falsehood our hope, and in falsehood we will be sheltered”; 16 therefore thus says the Lord, See, I will lay for the foundations of Sion a precious, choice stone, a highly valued cornerstone for its foundations, and the one who believes in him will not be put to shame. 17 And I will turn judgment into hope, and my mercy will become weight balances, and as for you who trust vainly in falsehood, I tell you that the tempest will not pass you by, 18 lest it also take away your covenant of death. And your hope regarding Hades will not remain; if a rushing storm comes, you will be trampled down by it.
