“The chiefe thing for life is water and bread, and clothing, and an house to couer shame.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 29:21

18. Suretiship hath vndone many of good estate, and shaked them as a waue of the Sea: mightie men hath it driuen from their houses, so that they wandred among strange nations. 19. A wicked man transgressing the commandements of the Lord, shall fall into suretiship: and hee that vndertaketh and followeth other mens businesse for gaine, shall fall into suits. 20. Helpe thy neighbour according to thy power, and beware that thou thy selfe fall not into the same. 21. The chiefe thing for life is water and bread, and clothing, and an house to couer shame. 22. Better is the life of a poore man in a meane cottage, then delicate fare in another mans house. 23. Be it little or much, holde thee contented, that thou heare not the reproch of thy house. 24. For it is a miserable life to goe from house to house: for where thou art a stranger, thou darest not open thy mouth.
