Proverbs 24:30-31

Context

24:30 I passed by the field of a sluggard,

by the vineyard of one who lacks wisdom. 1 

24:31 I saw 2  that thorns had grown up all over it,

the ground 3  was covered with weeds,

and its stone wall was broken down.

1 tn Heb “lacks heart”; KJV “understanding”; NAB, NASB, NLT “sense.”

2 tn The Hebrew term וְהִנֵּה (vÿhinneh, traditionally “and, lo” [KJV, ASV]) is a deictic particle that calls attention to what comes next. “And look” is too abrupt here; “I saw” calls attention to the field that was noticed.

3 tn Heb “its face” (so KJV, ASV).
