comment Does Sirach have a verse 42:31?
Hmmm 25 in this Wikisource's Hebrew version is יֵבוֹשׁ הַנּוֹדֵב מֵהַכְלִים בְּמַתַּת יָדוֹ וְהַגּוֹאֵל מֵהַעֲלִים עַיִן מִשְּׁאֵרוֹ. The volunteer should be embarrassed from insulting with his gifts, and the redeemer from turning his eyes from his family. Looks very similar to Sirahc 41:21 in NSRV. Something funny is going on with the chapter divisions and such. Looking closer now, 42:1-2 in NSRV closely parallels 42:26-29, but then the parallel doesn't really follow. Hmmm...

comment Does Sirach have a verse 42:31?
@Susan I can't read Greek so don't know when it ends nor what texts those English translations used. I also don't know if we have original Hebrew (eg. from Dead Sea Scrolls) for this section, or if Wikisource is even using those original texts and not later back-translations into Hebrew from Greek. Certainly the answer could lie in those issues.

comment How long did Job's tribulation last?
FWIW both options (history and allegory) are mentioned in the Talmud as possibilities. (CC: @warren)
