Laziness (Prov 19:15-19:17)

“Laziness brings on deep sleep.

An idle person will suffer hunger.

Those who keep the commandment will live.

Those who are heedless of their ways will die.

Whoever is kind to the poor

Lends to Yahweh.

Yahweh will repay them for their deed.”

Laziness and idleness will lead to nothing but sleep and hunger. If you want to live, keep the commandments. Otherwise you will die. If you are kind to the poor, you are lending to Yahweh, who will repay you for your deed.
