By Dr. George J. Ceremuga

The book of Sirach or Ecclesiasticus is full of “proverbial” wisdom written by Jesus, the son of Eleazar before the birth of Jesus Christ. It contains maxims that inspire individuals, families, and communities to lead with love. In chapter 40, the author provides guidance on the joys and mysteries of life:

“Sheepfolds and orchards bring flourishing health; but better than either, a devoted wife. Wine and music delight the soul, but better than either, conjugal love. The flute and harp offer sweet melody, but better than either, a voice that is true. A friend, a neighbor, are timely guides, but better than either, a prudent wife. Fear of the Lord leaves nothing wanting; its canopy, all that is glorious” (V.19-27).

A child or a city will preserve one’s name, but better than either, attaining wisdom.
Sirach 40:18

But better than either, a devoted wife…
