    Sirach 4 Commentary, One of over Bible commentaries freely available, this commentary was originally compiled by priest and biblical scholar Rev. George Leo Haydock. The Book of Ecclesiasticus, also known as the Wisdom of Sirach or Book of Sirach or simply as Sirach, is a second century BC writing by a Jewish scribe named Shimon ben Yeshua ben Eliezer ben Sira who was from the City of Jerusalem.

    2 For the Lord honors a father above his children, and he confirms a mother’s right over her children. 3 Those who honor their father atone for sins, 4 and those who respect their mother are like those who lay up treasure. 5 Those who honor their father will have joy in their own children, and when they pray they will be heard. 6 Those who respect their father will have long life. Sirach - CEBA: Listen to a father's warning, children, and act accordingly so that you may be safe. The Lord gives pride of place to a father above his children and establishes a mother's judgment above that of her offspring.

    The book of Sirach actually has three different titles, depending on the language of its transmission or the religious tradition that reads it. In Hebrew the book is known as The Wisdom of Joshua (Jesus) Ben Sira. In the Vulgate, the book is called Ecclesiasticus (the church’s book). In the Jewish-Greek scriptures. 1 The Prologue of the Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach.
