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.
