|Bible in Basic English (BBE)
||New International Version (NIV)
19 By ploughing his land a man will have bread in full measure; but he who goes after good-for-nothing persons will be poor enough.
19 He who works his land will have abundant food, but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
