And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;

Proverbs 24:30 New International Version (NIV)
30 I went past the field of a sluggard,
past the vineyard of someone who has no sense;
Proverbs 24:30 Amplified Bible (AMP)
I went by the field of the lazy man,
And by the vineyard of the man lacking understanding and common sense;
Proverbs 24:30-34 The Message (MSG)
30-34 One day I walked by the field of an old lazybones,
and then passed the vineyard of a lout;
They were overgrown with weeds,
thick with thistles, all the fences broken down.
I took a long look and pondered what I saw;
the fields preached me a sermon and I listened:
“A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there,
sit back, take it easy—do you know what comes next?
Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life,
with poverty as your permanent houseguest!”
