30 I went by the field of the sluggard,
by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 24:30

Commentary on Proverbs 24:30-34

(Read Proverbs 24:30-34)

See what a blessing the husbandman's calling is, and what a wilderness this earth would be without it. See what great difference there is in the management even of worldly affairs. Sloth and self-indulgence are the bane of all good. When we see fields overgrown with thorns and thistles, and the fences broken down, we see an emblem of the far more deplorable state of many souls. Every vile affection grows in men's hearts; yet they compose themselves to sleep. Let us show wisdom by doubling our diligence in every good thing.
