Daily Bible Verse - 11/18/2007 - Proverbs 15:17

NIV Better a meal of vegetables where there is love
than a fattened calf with hatred.
KJV Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.
NASB Better is a dish of vegetables where love is
Than a fattened ox served with hatred.
Proverbs 15:17
A plate of vegetables in an atmosphere of love is better than a filet mignon roast where there is strife. Moffatt says, "Better is a dish of vegetables, than the best beef served with hatred."
A fatted calf is one that has been raised in a stall and given the best feed; its meat is tender and delicious.
