“Be it little or much, holde thee contented, that thou heare not the reproch of thy house.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 25. Thou shalt entertaine and feast, and haue no thankes: moreouer, thou shalt heare bitter words. 26. Come thou stranger, and furnish a table, and feede me of that thou hast ready.
