The desire of the slothful slayeth him, For his hands have refused to work.
Proverbs 21:25 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The desire of the slothful killeth him - He desires to eat, drink, and be clothed: but as he does not labor, hence he dies with this desire in his heart, envying those who possess plenty through their labor and industry. Hence he is said to covet greedily all the day long, Proverbs 21:26, while the righteous, who has been laborious and diligent, has enough to eat, and some to spare.
