New American Standard Bible
6 Go to the (A)ant, you [a](B)lazy one,
Observe its ways and be wise,
7 Which, having (C)no chief,
Officer, or ruler,
8 Prepares its food (D)in the summer
And gathers its provision in the harvest.
9 How long will you lie down, you [b]lazy one?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10 “(E)A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to [c]rest,”
11 (F)Then your poverty will come in like a [d]drifter,
And your need like [e]an armed man.
