“There be two maner of nations which my heart abhorreth, and the third is no nation.”
King James Version (KJV)
22. Now therefore blesse yee the God of all, which onely doth wonderous things euery where, which exalteth our daies from the wombe, and dealeth with vs according to his mercy. 23. He grant vs ioyfulnesse of heart, and that peace may be in our daies in Israel for euer. 24. That hee would confirme his mercy with vs, and deliuer vs at his time. 25. There be two maner of nations which my heart abhorreth, and the third is no nation. 26. They that sit vpon the mountaine of Samaria, and they that dwell amongst the Philistines, and that foolish people that dwell in Sichem. 27. Iesus the sonne of Sirach of Hierusalem hath written in this booke, the instruction of vnderstanding and knowledge, who out of his heart powred forth wisedome. 28. Blessed is he that shall be exercised in these things, and hee that layeth them vp in his heart, shall become wise.
