The man who gathers in the summer is an insightful son;
the man who is fast asleep at the harvest is a shameful son. Bible see other translations

“summer…harvest.” In many countries these are two different seasons, summer being the growing season and autumn being the harvest season. However, in Israel, much of the harvest, especially of grains and grapes, occurs in the summer. Some even occurs in the Spring.

“a shameful son.” Literally, “a son being put to shame.”

Commentary for: Proverbs 10:5
