surprising to find the Greek text of Sirach using these words interchangeably, in synonymous parallelism or desig- nating the same or related characters within the same context.191

These three major designations from the fwr-group

appear sixty-three times within the book of Sirach.192 The field of words in this category is enlarged further by several expressions which appear in synonymous parallelism or the near context. Related on contextual grounds are the adikoj ("unjust," 40:13),193 allotrioj ("other," 11:

34),194 diglwssoj ("two-tongued," 5:9),195 kakourgoj

each and once each by adikein, adikia, adikwj, anhr, asebeia, asebein, dunasthj, qrasuj, kataoikazein, paranomoj and sklhroj.

191 Thus, asebhj is related to amartwloj at 7:16, 17; 9:11, 12; 12:4, 5, 6, 7; 19:11; 39:25, 27; 41:5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and to anomoj at 16:1, 3, 4; 31(34):18, 19; 39:24. Amartwloj is related to anomoj at 21:9, 10; 39:24, 25, 27; 40:10.

192 Asebhj at 7:17; 9:12; 12:5, 6; 13:24; 16:1, 3; 21:27; 22:12; 31(34):19; 39:30; 40:15; 41:5, 7, 8, 10; 42:2; amartwloj at 1:25; 2:12; 3:27; 5:6, 9; 6:1; 7:16; 8:10; 9:11; 10:23; 11:9, 21, 32; 12:4, 6, 7, 14; 13:17; 15:7,'9, 12; 16:6, 13; 19:22; 21:6, 10; 23:8; 25:19; 27:30; 28:9; 29:16, 19; 35(32):17; 36(33):14; 39:25, 27; 40:8; 41:5, 6, 11; anomoj at 16:4; 21:9; 31(34):18; 39:24; 40:10; 49:3. Also entering the picture at this point is the verb amartanein used substantively at 10:29; 19:4; 38:15.

193 Cf. 17:14; 27:10; 32(35):18 and the verb adikein used substantively at 4:9.

194 0therwise appearing at 8:18; 9:8; 21:25; 21:8, 25; 23:22, 23; 29:18, 22; 33(36):3; 35(32):18; 39:4; 40:29(2x); 45:18; 49:5.

195

Also 5:14, 15.
