|Bible in Basic English (BBE)
||New International Version (NIV)
2 It is of no use for you to get up early, and to go late to your rest, with the bread of sorrow for your food; for the Lord gives to his loved ones in sleep.
2 In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat-- for he grants sleep to those he loves.
