Proverbs 23:6 (Amplified Bible)

Eat not the bread of him who has a hard, grudging, and envious eye, neither desire his dainty foods;

Proverbs 23:6 (New King James Version)

Do not eat the bread of a miser, Nor desire his delicacies;

A. Do not eat the bread of the one with an evil eye.

"Eat not the bread of him who has a hard, grudging, and envious eye,"

We saw the source of evil and it's beginning was in the verse Genesis 2:9 as man and woman desired to be like GOD, they wanted something that GOD withold from them so that it will not harm them. What GOD forbid, they took and ate (consumed). So that was the beginning of good and evil in mankind, the knowledge of it, but how to discern and choose the good, was missing. It was only head knowledge not experiential knowledge.

Genesis 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired—good (suitable, pleasant) for food; the tree of life also in the center of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of [the difference between] good and evil and blessing and calamity.

A different bountiful eye we can see are people who blessed another.

Proverbs 22:9 (Amplified Bible)

He who has a bountiful eye shall be blessed, for he gives of his bread to the poor.

Deuteronomy 15:9 (Amplified Bible)

Beware lest there be a base thought in your [minds and] hearts, and you say, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand, and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing, and he cry to the Lord against you, and it be sin in you.

Deuteronomy 28:56 (Amplified Bible)

The most tender and daintily bred woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground because she is so dainty and kind, will grudge to the husband of her bosom, to her son and to her daughter

Matthew 20:15 (Amplified Bible)

Am I not permitted to do what I choose with what is mine? [Or do you begrudge my being generous?] Is your eye evil because I am good?

Mark 7:22 (Amplified Bible)

Coveting (a greedy desire to have more wealth), dangerous and destructive wickedness, deceit; unrestrained (indecent) conduct; an evil eye (envy), slander (evil speaking, malicious misrepresentation, abusiveness), pride (the sin of an uplifted heart against God and man), foolishness (folly, lack of sense, recklessness, thoughtlessness).

Remember the saying the beauty is in the eye of the beholder? Here it became true, we behold evil through the eye. We see people as different from us that's why we behold things from them. That's why if you are stingy, or greedy for things, you have isolated yourself from others, and withold your things from others.

Evileyed - Looking with an evil eye, or with envy, jealousy or bad design. [Source: Webster's dictionary]

These are the type of person who always see the evil in somebody else's and not on themselves. They see the evil in the way people walk, talk, smile, wear clothes, even in the way they comb their hair. I will admit that I was once like this but GOD changed me from glory to glory.
