What does Proverbs 19:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 19:15

Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep
Slothful persons are generally sleepy, and are very desirous of sleep, and indulge themselves in it; they spend their time, day and night, in sleep and drowsiness; and are quite careless and unconcerned about either their temporal or eternal good; see ( Proverbs 6:9-11 ) ; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger;
and perish with it, both in a temporal and spiritual sense: an idle person, that will not work, ought not to eat; and an idle soul, or one that is unconcerned about his soul, and the spiritual food of it, shall perish for want of it.
