The King James Version Bible

Proverbs 24:30-34

  1. I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding;

  2. And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.

  3. Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction.

  4. Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:

  5. So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
