Why is bezonas preferred in this case? I thought that bezoni was need for want of something, and devi was need as an obligation to do something?

"Mi ne devas labori plu" might translate more to "I shouldn't/mustn't work any longer." Which I would use more for short term situations, like, "I've put in 4 hours of work today, I'm beat, I shouldn't work any longer, I need a nap."
