consider her ways, and mbe wise.
7 nWithout having any chief,
oofficer, or ruler,
8 she prepares her bread pin summer
and qgathers her food in harvest.
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 sA little sleep, a little slumber,
11 uand poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.
4 A slack hand jcauses poverty,
kbut the hand of the diligent makes rich.
but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
24 The crown of the wise is their wealth,
but the folly of fools brings folly.
