32 Do not choose to be eager during any feast, and you should not act with excess toward any food.
Sir37:29 Be not unsatiable in any dainty thing, nor too greedy upon meats

Sir37:30 For excess of meats bringeth sickness, and surfeiting will turn into choler.

Sir37:31 By surfeiting have many perished; but he that taketh heed prolongeth his life.
