Proverbs 6:9-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

How long, O sluggard, will you lie there?
    when will you rise from your sleep?
10 A little sleep, a little slumber,
    a little folding of the arms to rest—[a]
11 Then poverty will come upon you like a robber,
    and want like a brigand.


  1. 6:10 This verse may be regarded as the sluggard’s reply or as a continuation of the remonstrance.
