Better a dry crust with peace and quiet
than a house full of feasting, with strife. (NIV)
Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. (KJV)
Better is a dry morsel and quietness with it
Than a house full of feasting with strife. (NASB)
A piece of zwieback or dry toast eaten in a relaxed setting is better than a sumptuous meal in an elegant house full of feasting where there is bickering and unhappiness.
Scripture is filled with references to banquets and feasts; very little is said about day-to-day family meals. All evidence, however, points to the custom of two regular meals a day-breakfast, a light meal in the morning, and supper, a heavier meal in the evening.
