A. The bread of wickedness deceived the Israelites

"This our bread we took hot for our provision out of our houses on the day we set out to go to you;"

Proverbs 4:17 (Amplified Bible)

For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.

Proverbs 20:17 (King James Version)

Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.

Proverbs 23:6 (Amplified Bible)

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

Bread or "lechem" in Hebrew language meaning food, bread or grain, fruit, loaf, meat, victuals. Victuals means "Food for human beings, prepared for eating; that which supports human life; provisions; meat; sustenance. We never apply this word to that on which beasts or birds feed, and we apply it chiefly to food for men when cooked or prepared for the table. We do not now give this name to flesh, corn or flour, in a crude state; but we say, the victuals are well cooked or dressed, and in great abundance. We say, a man eats his victuals with a good relish." [Source: Webster's dictionary]
