He who tills his land will have plenty of food, But he who follows empty pursuits will have poverty in plenty.
King James Bible

Darby Bible Translation
He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread; but he that followeth the worthless shall have poverty enough.
World English Bible
One who works his land will have an abundance of food; but one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
Young's Literal Translation
Whoso is tilling his ground is satisfied with bread, And whoso is pursuing vanity, Is filled with poverty.
Proverbs 28:19 Parallel
"He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy." Proverbs 28:13. The conditions of obtaining mercy of God are simple and just and reasonable. The Lord does not require us to do some grievous thing in order that we may have the forgiveness of sin. We need not make long and wearisome pilgrimages, or perform painful penances, to commend our souls to the God of heaven or to expiate our transgression; but he that confesseth and forsaketh his sin …
Ellen Gould White—Steps to Christ
He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense.
Do not love sleep, or you will become poor; Open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with food.
