This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

8Having food and raiment When he mentions food and raiment, he excludes luxuries and overflowing abundance; for nature is content with a little (122) and all that goes beyond the natural use is superfluous. Not that to use them more largely ought to be condemned on its own account, but lusting after them is always sinful.



(122) “ wants but little; nor that little long.” — Young’ Night Thoughts.
