9 rHow long will you lie there, lO sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
26 Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes,
so is the sluggard to those who send him.
19 The way of ha sluggard is like a hedge of ithorns,
but the path of the upright is ja level highway.
24 oThe sluggard buries his hand in pthe dish
and will not even bring it back to his mouth.
4 eThe sluggard does not plow in the autumn;
fhe will seek at harvest and have nothing.
25 The desire of gthe sluggard kills him,
for his hands refuse to labor.
26 All day long he craves and craves,
but the righteous hgives and does not hold back.
13 jThe sluggard says, “There is a lion outside!
I shall be killed in the streets!”
30 hI passed by the field of a sluggard,
by the vineyard of a man ilacking sense,
31 and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns;
the ground was covered with nettles,
and its stone jwall was broken down.
32 Then I saw and kconsidered it;
I looked and received instruction.
33 lA little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
and want like an armed man.
13 lThe sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road!
There is a lion in the streets!”
14 As a door turns on its hinges,
so does a sluggard on his bed.
15 mThe sluggard buries his hand in the dish;
it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth.
16 The sluggard is jwiser in his own eyes
nthan seven men who can answer sensibly.
