Do not say, "I will do to him as he has done to me; I will pay the man back for what he has done."
I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man without sense;
and lo, 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 man.
