അവൻ എന്നോടു സംസാരിച്ചുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുമ്പോൾ ഞാൻ ബോധംകെട്ടു നിലത്തു കവിണ്ണു വീണു; അവൻ എന്നെ തൊട്ടു എഴുന്നേല്പിച്ചു നിർത്തി.

Ecclesiastes 5:12

The sleep of a laboring man is sweet, Whether he eats little or much; But the abundance of the rich will not permit him to sleep.

വേലചെയ്യുന്ന മനുഷ്യൻ അല്പമോ അധികമോ ഭക്ഷിച്ചാലും അവന്റെ ഉറക്കം സുഖകരമാകുന്നു; ധനവാന്റെ സമൃദ്ധിയോ അവനെ ഉറങ്ങുവാൻ സമ്മതിക്കുന്നില്ല.

1 Thessalonians 5:7

For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.

ഉറങ്ങുന്നവർ രാത്രിയിൽ ഉറങ്ങുന്നു. മദ്യപിക്കുന്നവർ രാത്രിയിൽ മദ്യപിക്കുന്നു.
