Wisdom 19:14
Some people have failed to welcome strangers who came into their midst to stay awhile. But these people went so far as to make slaves of people who were their guests and benefactors.
And not only so, but in another respect also they were worse: for the others against their will received the strangers.
Other people had been known to refuse welcome to strangers who came to them, but these people made slaves of those who were their guests and who had shown them kindness.
For those others did not receive unfamiliar visitors, but these were enslaving beneficent guests.
Others had refused to receive strangers when they came to them, but these made slaves of guests who were their benefactors.
