SIRACH, THE WISDOM OF JESUS THE SON OF - apesretbooca.tk
Like the Book of Proverbs, this work stresses that fear of the Lord is the beginning and end of wisdom. The highest wisdom is, accordingly, to obey the Divine Will and the Torah, Jewish doctrine and law.
Unlike other books of the Apocrypha, "Ben Sira," a popular work, exerted a considerable influence on subsequent Jewish literature and on medieval moralist works. The original Hebrew version of this work was preserved for a longer period than the other Apocrypha books—until about the time of Saadia ben Joseph died It was lost for centuries, but in Professor Solomon Schechter discovered a number of fragments of the work in the storeroom of the Old Cairo Synagogue.
Almost two-thirds of the original was eventually recovered.
