Do not say, "I will do to others as they have done to me; I will pay them back for what they have done."
I passed by the field of one who was lazy, by the vineyard of a stupid person;
and see, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down.
Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction.
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want, like an armed warrior.
