A sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he is too lazy to bring it back to his mouth.
Read Proverbs 26:15 Using Other Translations
The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth.
Lazy people take food in their hand but don’t even lift it to their mouth.
