Proverbs 24:30-34 The Message Bible

30  One day I walked by the field of an old lazybones, and then passed the vineyard of a lout; 31  They were overgrown with weeds, thick with thistles, all the fences broken down. 32  I took a long look and pondered what I saw; the fields preached me a sermon and I listened: 33  "A nap here, a nap there, a day off here, a day off there, sit back, take it easy - do you know what comes next? 34  Just this: You can look forward to a dirt-poor life, with poverty as your permanent houseguest!"
