Pro 26:13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets.
Pro 26:14 As the door turneth upon his hinges, so doth the slothful upon his bed.
Pro 26:15 The slothful hideth his hand in his bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
Pro 26:16 The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
Pro 26:17 He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears.
Pro 26:18 As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
Pro 26:19 So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
This part starts off dealing with the slothful, and then jumps back into some foolish behavior. I really like the analogy between meddling with strife and grabbing a dog by the ears. It isn't safe to keep hanging on to them, but it isn't safe to let them go either!
