6Go to the ant, O sluggard,
Observe her ways and be wise,
7Which, having no chief,
Officer or ruler,
8Prepares her food in the summer
And gathers her provision in the harvest.
9How long will you lie down, O sluggard?
When will you arise from your sleep?
10″A little sleep, a little slumber,
A little folding of the hands to rest”-
11Your poverty will come in like a vagabond
And your need like an armed man.

Action: How should I be like the ant?
