The Folly of Indolence

6   Go to the ant, you sluggard!
    Consider her ways and be wise,
7   Which, having no captain,
    Overseer or ruler,
8   Provides her supplies in the summer,
    And gathers her food in the harvest.
9   How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep?
10  A little sleep, a little slumber,
    A little folding of the hands to sleep—
11  So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler,
    And your need like an armed man.
 
            Proverbs 6:6-11 (NKJV)

Indolence1: Habitual laziness; sloth.
