Harvey, “Toward a Degree of Order in Ben Sira’s Book,” ZAW 105 (1993): 52–62, whence I have taken the titles of parts 1–4, 6–7 (61); Harvey calls 32:14–33:18 a wisdom poem (53). See further the discussion in J. Marböck, “Structure and Redaction History of the Book of Ben Sira: Review and Introduction 23 Part 1, 1:1–4:10: “Understanding Wisdom” begun by wisdom poem (1:1–10) Part 2, 4:11–6:17: “Applying Wisdom Personally” begun by wisdom poem (4:11–19) Part 3, 6:18–14:19: “Applying Wisdom Socially” begun by wisdom poem (6:18–37) Part 4, 14:20–23:27: “Applying Wisdom to Speech and Thought” begun by wisdom poem (14:20–15:10) Part 5, 24:1–32:13: “Applying Wisdom to Domestic Life” begun by wisdom poem (24:1–34) Part 6, 32:14–38:23: “Using Wisdom to Make Good Decisions” begun by wisdom poem (32:14–33:18) Part 7, 38:24–42:14: “Demonstrating the Results of Wisdom” begun by wisdom poem (38:24–39:11) Part 8, 42:15–50:24: “Wisdom in Creation and History” begun by wisdom poem (42:15–43:33) Appendices, 50:25–51:30 ended by wisdom poem (51:13–30) Attention to this overall structure reveals that the friendship pericopes do not occur randomly in Ben Sira’s book but rather fit in with their wider context.

98 On a smaller scale, key words often serve to delimit stanzas; thus, the threefold repetition of one phrase in 6:8–10 and of another in 6:14–16 shows the stanzaic pattern in 6:5–17. An inclusio may also delimit a stanza; thus, the resemblance of 6:8b and 6:10b suggests that 6:8–10 is a stanza. Sometimes, too, opening and closing rhyme occurs; thus, in 13:15–23 the first stanza uses internal rhyme in its last bicolon (13:20a), while the second has rhyme in its opening bicolon (13:21ab). e. 99 Besides the examples of opening and closing rhyme listed 13:23abcd.

Gordis, “The Social Background of Wisdom Literature,” HUCA 18 (1943–1944): 77–118; compare the sage’s advice on the treatment of slaves (Sir 7:20–21; 33:25–30). ” B. G. Wright suggests that “Ben Sira would have belonged to a retainer class that acted as mediators between the rulers, primarily priests in ancient Judea, and ordinary Jews”; see his “‘Fear the Lord and Honor the Priest’: Ben Sira As Defender of the Jerusalem Priesthood,” in The Book of Ben Sira in Modern Research (ed.
