1After Eliphaz had finished the hymn, while all made response to him and circled round the altar, we got up and went into the city where we now have our home. 2And we held great festivities and took our delight in the Lord; and once again I did my best to help the beggars. 3And all my friends came to me, and those who knew how to do good. 1 So P: SV ‘those who knew that I was doing good’. 4And they asked me, saying, What do you ask of us now? And I, with the beggars in mind, to do them good again, asked them and said, Give me, each one of you, a lamb to clothe the beggars' nakedness with. 5And then each of them brought me a lamb apiece and a tetradrachm of gold. And the Lord blessed everything I had and doubled it.
