Proverbs 6:6-8

Go

to the ant, you sluggard. Consider her ways, and be wise; which having no chief, overseer, or ruler, provides her bread in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Context

Proverbs 6 [5.] Free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter,
like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
Go to the ant, you sluggard.
Consider her ways, and be wise;

which having no chief, overseer, or ruler,
provides her bread in the summer,
and gathers her food in the harvest.
How long will you sleep, sluggard?
When will you arise out of your sleep?

Proverbs 6 [10.] A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to sleep:
so your poverty will come as a robber,
and your scarcity as an armed man.

A worthless person, a man of iniquity,
is he who walks with a perverse mouth;
who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet,
who motions with his fingers;
in whose heart is perverseness,
who devises evil continually,
who always sows discord.
