Fabrication as Opposed to Fact

The word “Entertain” only appears once in the Catholic Douay-Rheims Bible which is a translation of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English.

On the subject of “Lending and Borrowing” in the book of Ecclesiastical chapter 29;31 we read: “He shall entertain, and feed, and give drink to the unthankful, and moreover, he shall hear bitter words.”

What does that verse mean? According to another Catholic source we look at the Haydock Bible which is a Catholic Bible commentary, following the Douay-Rheims Bible text, was originally compiled by a Catholic priest and biblical scholar Rev. George Leo Haydock (1774-1849).

The modern reader will be cautioned that this older commentary uses some archaic language and spellings.

Ecclesiastical verse 31. from the Haydock Bible it reads as follows “Shall Or “has formerly entertained” those, who now reproach him, make him serve in the meanest offices, and at last cast him forth. It may also signify that people who receive ungrateful vagabonds, will be required to serve them, and had better keep them out, ver. 33. (Calmet) — Greek, “thou shalt entertain and give drink to the most disagreeable things.” (Haydock)
