Text Commentary

1And if ever any well-intentioned man 1 Lit. ‘any man of a cheerful heart’. came to me and said, I have not myself the means to aid the poor, yet I would gladly serve 2the beggars to-day at your table, permission would be granted, he would do his service, and he would be given his own meal; and when evening came and he was leaving to go off home, he would be 3made take something from me, for I would say, I know you are a working-man, who expects and looks for your wages: you must take something. And I would not allow the hireling's wages to remain with me in my house.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘any man of a cheerful heart’.
