    The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.

    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 13:25

    To the satisfying of his soul - His desires are all moderate; he is contented with his circumstances, and is pleased with the lot which God is pleased to send. The wicked, though he use all shifts and expedients to acquire earthly good, not sticking even at rapine and wrong, is frequently in real want, and always dissatisfied with his portion. A contented mind is a continual feast. At such feasts he eats not.
