Sluggards do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing.
Read Proverbs 20:4 Using Other Translations
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
The sluggard does not plow in the autumn; he will seek at harvest and have nothing.
Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest.
