Or but diligence is precious wealth
27 The lazy do not roast any game,
but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting:
But the substance of a diligent man is precious.
27 Lazy people don’t even cook the game they catch,
but the diligent make use of everything they find.
27 The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,
But diligence is man’s precious possession.
27 The lazy catch no food to cook,
but a hard worker will have great wealth.
27 The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting;
But the precious substance of men is to the diligent.
27 The slothful roasteth not what he took in hunting; but man’s precious substance is to the diligent.
27 A lazy hunter does not catchhis prey,
but a hard-working person becomes wealthy.
27 A lazy man doesn’t roast his game,
but to a diligent man, his wealth is precious.
27 The lazy do not roast their game,
but the diligent obtain precious wealth.
27 The lazy will not roast his game,
but diligence is the precious wealth of a man.
27 Anyone who refuses to work doesn’t even cook what he catches.
But a man who works hard values what he has.
27 A lazy man does not roast his prey,
But the precious possession of a man is diligence.
