“For it is a miserable life to goe from house to house: for where thou art a stranger, thou darest not open thy mouth.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 29:24

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. 27. Giue place thou stranger to an honourable man, my brother commeth to be lodged, and I haue neede of mine house.
