11Give a sweet savour, and a memorial of fine flour; and make a fat offering, as not being. 12Then give place to the physician, for the Lord hath created him: let him not go from thee, for thou hast need of him. 13There is a time when in their hands there is good success. 14For they shall also pray unto the Lord, that he would prosper that, which they give for ease and remedy to prolong life.15He that sinneth before his Maker, let him fall into the hand of the physician. 16My son, let tears fall down over the dead, and begin to lament, as if thou hadst suffered great harm thyself; and then cover his body according to the custom, and neglect not his burial. 17Weep bitterly, and make great moan, and use lamentation, as he is worthy, and that a day or two, lest thou be evil spoken of: and then comfort thyself for thy heaviness.
