[ <1 minutes to read ]
The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
– Proverbs 26:15The third saying is very close to Proverbs 19:24. The word for grieveth means weary or tiring. The image exaggerates laziness to the point the sluggard is too lazy to lift his hand to his mouth to eat. Kidner pointed out the sluggard’s objection to being hurried in regard to this saying.
