The Book of Sirach is referred to as The Book of Ecclesiasticus.   
It is accepted as part of the Canon by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, and most of Oriental Orthodox Christians.

Sirach Chapter 8 Verse 9   
Reject not the tradition of old men   
which they have learned from their fathers;     
From it you will obtain the knowledge   
how to answer in time of need.

Sirach 1:1-3 RSVCE

1 All wisdom comes from the Lord
    and is with him for ever.
2 The sand of the sea, the drops of rain,
    and the days of eternity—who can count them?
3 The height of heaven, the breadth of the earth,
    the abyss, and wisdom—who can search them out?

Sirach Chapter 42 Verses 21-22     
Perennial is his (The Lord God's) almighty wisdom;     
he is from all eternity one and the same,   
With nothing added, nothing taken away;   
no need of a counselor for him!
