|American Standard Version (ASV)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, To take rest late, To eat the bread of toil; [For] so he giveth unto his beloved sleep.
2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat-- for he grants sleep to those he loves.
