New American Standard Bible

Chapter 6

9 How long will you lie down, you lazy one? When will you arise from your sleep? 10 'A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to rest,' 11 Then your poverty will come in like a drifter, And your need like an armed man.
King James Version

Chapter 6

9 How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? 10 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 11 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 6

9 How long will you stay in bed, you slacker? When will you get up from your sleep? 10 A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the arms to rest, 11 and your poverty will come like a robber, your need, like a bandit.
New Living Translation

Chapter 6

9 But you, lazybones, how long will you sleep? When will you wake up? 10 A little extra sleep, a little more slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest-- 11 then poverty will pounce on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.
English Standard Version
