Proverbs 23:6-8

Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

Solomon wrote not to be a guest of someone who is evil nor a miser who begrudges every bite of food we eat, to the point that they count every forkful that is taken. He stresses that it is not what is said that counts, but what we think.
