Proverbs Chapter 6 Verse 6-19 [6] Go to the ant, you sluggard. Consider her ways, and be wise; [7] which having no chief, overseer, or ruler, [8] provides her bread in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest. [9] How long will you sleep, sluggard? When will you arise out of your sleep? [10] A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: [11] so your poverty will come as a robber, and your scarcity as an armed man. [12] A worthless person, a man of iniquity, is he who walks with a perverse mouth; [13] who winks with his eyes, who signals with his feet, who motions with his fingers; [14] in whose heart is perverseness, who devises evil continually, who always sows discord. [15] Therefore his calamity will come suddenly. He will be broken suddenly, and that without remedy. [16] There are six things which Yahweh hates; yes, seven which are an abomination to him: [17] haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood; [18] a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are swift in running to mischief, [19] a false witness who utters lies, and he who sows discord among brothers.

Ecclesiastes Chapter 4 Verse 1-8 [1] Then I returned and saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold, the tears of those who were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter. [2] Therefore I praised the dead who have been long dead more than the living who are yet alive. [3] Yes, better than them both is him who has not yet been, who has not seen the evil work that is done under the sun. [4] Then I saw all the labor and achievement that is the envy of a man's neighbor. This also is vanity and a striving after wind. [5] The fool folds his hands together and ruins himself. [6] Better is a handful, with quietness, than two handfuls with labor and chasing after wind. [7] Then I returned and saw vanity under the sun. [8] There is one who is alone, and he has neither son nor brother. There is no end to all of his labor, neither are his eyes satisfied with wealth. "For whom then, do I labor, and deprive my soul of enjoyment?" This also is vanity. Yes, it is a miserable business.

[11] Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
