9 He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.
9 One who is slack in his work is brother to one who destroys.
9 Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.
9 Slack habits and sloppy work are as bad as vandalism.
9 He who is slothful in his work Is a brother to him who is a great destroyer.
9 A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things.
