    by the vineyard of a man (B)lacking sense,
31 and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns;
    the ground was covered with nettles,
    and its stone (C)wall was broken down.
32 Then I saw and (D)considered it;

    a little folding of the hands to rest,
34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber,
    and want like an armed man.
