[1] Thus have I heard:

Once the Exalted One dwelt near Sāvatthī;
and there he addressed the monks, saying:

'Monks.'

'Yes, lord,' they replied;
and the Exalted One said:

'Monks, not from these five things
shall health[1] spring forth.

What five?

He treats not himself with physic;

metes out physic without intelligence;

eats unripe things;

goes about at unseemly times;

and walks not the godly[2] way.

Verily, monks, not from these five shall health spring forth.'
