1Let us now praise famous men, and our fathers in their generations. 10But these were men of mercy, whose righteous deeds have not been forgotten; 11their prosperity will remain with their descendants, and their inheritance to their children’s children. 12Their descendants stand by the covenants; their children also, for their sake. 13Their posterity will continue for ever, and their glory will not be blotted out. 14Their bodies were buried in peace, and their name lives to all generations. 15Peoples will declare their wisdom, and the congregation proclaims their praise.
