30 I went by the field of the lazy man,

And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;

31 And there it was, wall overgrown with thorns;

Its surface was covered with nettles;

Its stone wall was broken down.

32 When I saw it, I considered it well;

I looked on it and received instruction:

33 xA little sleep, a little slumber,

A little folding of the hands to rest;

34 ySo shall your poverty come like 6a prowler,

And your need like 7an armed man.
