Proverbs 24:27-34 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
27 Prepare your work outside, get everything ready for you in the field; and after that build your house. 28 Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, and do not deceive with your lips. 29 Do not say, "I will do to others as they have done to me; I will pay them back for what they have done." 30 I passed by the field of one who was lazy, by the vineyard of a stupid person; 31 and see, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. 32 Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. 33 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, 34 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want, like an armed warrior.
