Proverbs 23:8 (Amplified Bible)

The morsel which you have eaten you will vomit up, and your complimentary words will be wasted.

Proverbs 23:8 (New King James Version)

The morsel you have eaten, you will vomit up, And waste your pleasant words.

A. The morsel you will vomit up

"The morsel which you have eaten you will vomit up,"

The context is if you eat the food and drink the drink of a stingy person, a person whose heart is not with you but is in the cost.

The morsel or meal you have eaten will be vomitted up by you. So I usually asked a person if he/she wants to treat me food, "Is your heart with me?" If his heart is not with me, then I will not bother anything that is put in my front by him. I'm a weird person I know, but I know Someone's weirder than me, that is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. He's totally out of this world, and He's teaching us not to get sick in the stomach.

One of the characteristic of a godless (unbeliever) man is he will vomit up all the things that he got here on earth.

"he has swallowed down [his ill-gotten] riches, and he shall vomit them up again; god will cast them out of his belly. "

Such is the future of an ungodly man.

Job 20:5-17 (Amplified Bible)

That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the godless and defiled is but for a moment?

Though his [proud] height mounts up to the heavens and his head reaches to the clouds,

Yet he will perish forever like his own dung; those who have seen him will say, Where is he?

He will fly away like a dream and will not be found; yes, he will be chased away as a vision of the night.

The eye which saw him will see him no more, neither will his [accustomed] place any more behold him.

The poor will oppress his children, and his hands will give back his [ill-gotten] wealth.

His bones are full of youthful energy, but it will lie down with him in the dust.
