WHy the Apocrypha essential

Ecclesiasticus 13:8-14, Beware that thou be not deceived, and brought down in thy jollity. If thou be invited of a mighty man [sheriff, policeman, agent, etc.], withdraw thyself [avoid], and so much the more will he invite thee. Press thou not upon him, lest thou be put back; stand not far off, lest thou be forgotten. Affect not to be made equal unto him in talk, and believe not his many words: for with much communication will he tempt thee, and smiling upon thee will get out thy secrets: But cruelly will he lay up thy words, and will not spare to do thee hurt, and to put thee in prison. Observe, and take good heed, for thou walkest in peril of thy overthrowing: when thou hearest these things, awake in thy sleep. Love the Lord all thy life, and call upon Him for salvation.”
