WISDOM FROM PROVERBS.
1. Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger
2. A slothful man hideth his hand to his bossom and will not so much bring it to his mouth again
3. The sluggard shall not plow by reason of cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
4. Love not sleep; lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes and thou shalt be satisfied with bread
5.Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he will stand before kings and not mean men.
6.Give not sleep to thine eyes nor slumber to thine eyelids.
7. Deliver yourself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.
8.Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.Which having no guide, overseer or ruler provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard?
When will thou arise out of thy sleep?
Yet a little sleep,a little slumber and a little folding of hands to sleep
So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
