6:9-11“How long will you lie down, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep?

13:4“The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, But the soul of the diligent is made fat.”
20:4“The sluggard does not plow after the autumn, So he begs during the harvest and has nothing.”
21:17“He who loves pleasure will become a poor man; He who loves wine and oil will not become rich.”

4And by knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches.”
