Proverbs 24 : 30 - 34

Chapter 24

30I went by the field of the lazy man, And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;
31And there it was, all overgrown with thorns; Its surface was covered with nettles; Its stone wall was broken down.
32When I saw it, I considered it well; I looked on it and received instruction:
33A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest;
34So shall your poverty come like a prowler, And your need like an armed man.
