Sirach 6:19

Come to her as one that plougheth, and soweth, and wait for her good fruits:

As though plowing and sowing, draw close to her; then wait for her bountiful crops. For in cultivating her you will work but little, and soon you will eat her fruit.

As he that erreth (or that ploweth), and that soweth, nigh (or approach) thou to it, and abide thou (for) the good fruits thereof.

In the work forsooth of it a little thou shalt travail, and soon thou shalt eat of the gettings of it.]
