Sirach 36:10-15 Gather all the tribes of Jacob, that they may inherit the land as of old. Show mercy to the people called by Your Name; Israel, whom You named Your first-born.

Give evidence of Your deeds of old; fulfill the prophecies spoken in Your Name, reward those who have hoped in You, and let Your prophets be proved true.

verse 35 So now with full joy of heart proclaim and bless the Name of the Holy One.
