The Sluggard Song (Proverbs 6:6-11; 24:30-34)

Go to the ant...

 “Go to the ant, O sluggard,
Observe her ways and be wise,
Which, having no chief,
Officer or ruler,
Prepares her food in the summer
And gathers her provision in the harvest.
How long will you lie down, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
‘A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest’—
Your poverty will come in like a vagabond
And your need like an armed man.”
(Proverbs 6:6-11, NASB)
“I passed by the field of the sluggard
And by the vineyard of the man lacking sense,
And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles;
Its surface was covered with nettles,
And its stone wall was broken down.
When I saw, I reflected upon it;
I looked, and received instruction.
‘A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest,’
Then your poverty will come as a robber
And your want like an armed man.”
(Proverbs 24:30-34, NASB)
