3  Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.

4  Give not sleep to thine eyes, nor slumber to thine eyelids.

5  Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

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:
