Proverbs 24:30-34 New Living Translation

30  I walked by the field of a lazy person, the vineyard of one with no common sense. 31  I saw that it was overgrown with nettles. It was covered with weeds, and its walls were broken down. 32  Then, as I looked and thought about it, I learned this lesson: 33  A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest- 34  then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.
