14 As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 26:14

Commentary on Proverbs 26:14

(Read Proverbs 26:14)

Having seen the slothful man in fear of his work, here we find him in love with his ease. Bodily ease is the sad occasion of many spiritual diseases. He does not care to get forward with his business. Slothful professors turn thus. The world and the flesh are hinges on which they are hung; and though they move in a course of outward services, yet they are not the nearer to heaven.
