Let us now praise famous men, and, our fathers that begat us. The Lord had wrought great glory by the, through his great power from the beginning.

Such as did bear rule in the kingdoms, men renowned for their power, giving counsel by their understanding, and declaring prophesies: Leaders of the people by their counsel, and by their knowledge of learning meet for the people, wise and eloquent in their instructions: Such as found out musical tunes, and recited verses in writing; Rich men furnished with ability living peaceably in their habitations: All these were honored in their generations, and were the glory of their times.

There be of them, that have left a name behind them, that their praises might be reported. And some there be which have no memorial; who perished, as though they had never been; and are become as though they had never been born; and their children after them. But these were merciful men, whose righteousness hath not been forgotten. With their seed shall continually remain a good inheritance, and their children, are within the covenant.

Their seed standeth fast, and their children, for their sakes. Their bodies are buried in peace; but their name liveth for evermore.

Apocrypha 44-1
