I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “maintenance”.

Ezra 4:14 Now because we have maintenance from the king’s palace,
and it was not meet for us to see the king’s dishonour,
therefore have we sent and certified the king;

Proverbs 27:27 And thou shalt have goats’ milk enough for thy food,
for the food of thy household,
and for the maintenance for thy maidens.
