2 Esdras 16:77 Woe be unto them that are bound with their sins, and covered with their iniquities like as a field is covered over with bushes, and the path thereof covered with thorns, that no man may travel through!
2 Esdras 16:78 It is left undressed, and is cast into the fire to be consumed therewith. Ecclesiasticus 17:22 The alms of a man is as a signet with him, and he will keep the good deeds of man as the apple of the eye, and give repentance to his sons and daughters. Ecclesiasticus 17:23 Afterwards he will rise up and reward them, and render their recompence upon their heads. Ecclesiasticus 17:24 But unto them that repent, he granted them return, and comforted those that failed in patience.
