Ben Sira 29:21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Frugality and Its Rewards[a]

21 Life’s prime needs are water, bread, and clothing,
    and also a house for decent privacy.

Footnotes:

  1. 29:21–28 Those who provide their own basic needs of food, clothing and dwelling, and are content with what they have, preserve their freedom and self-respect (vv. 21–23). But if they live as guests, even among the rich, they expose themselves to insult and rebuke (vv. 24–28).
