The Bible in Its Traditions

Sirach 22:1–2

V
G

The lazy man is pelted with a dirty stone, and all will speak about his rejection.

A slothful man is compared to a filthy stone, and every one will hiss him out to his disgrace.

The lazy man is pelted with the dung of oxen, and all who touch him will brush off their hands.

A slothful man is compared to the filth of a dunghill: every man that takes it up will shake his hand.
