Proverbs 24:30-34New American Standard Bible (NASB)
30 I passed by the field of the sluggard And by the vineyard of the man lacking [a]sense, 31 And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles; Its surface was covered with [b]nettles, And its stone wall was broken down. 32 When I saw, I [c]reflected upon it; I looked, and received instruction. 33 “A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,” 34 Then your poverty will come as[d]a robber And your want like [e]an armed man.
Proverbs 26:13-16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 The sluggard says, “There is a lion in the road! A lion is [a]in the open square!” 14 As the door turns on its hinges, So does the sluggard on his bed. 15 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; He is weary of bringing it to his mouth again. 16 The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes Than seven men who can [b]give a discreet answer.
Proverbs 27:23-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
23 Know well the [a]condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds; 24 For riches are not forever, Nor does a crown endure to all generations. 25 When the grass disappears, the new growth is seen, And the herbs of the mountains are gathered in, 26 The lambs will be for your clothing, And the goats will bring the price of a field, 27 And there will be goats’ milk enough for your food, For the food of your household, And sustenance for your maidens.
