The King James Version Bible

Proverbs 6:6-11

  1. Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:

  2. Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,

  3. Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

  4. How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

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

  6. So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
