meaning:
Lazy rulers bring down the great house of the nation, as a lazy householder lets the beams of his house collapse so that the roof sags and lets in the rain.

Pictures the fall of a nation, the following lines give the reason for fall – leaders who are foolish, selfish, and concerned only for their own pleasure and good.

They do nothing in order; turn night into day, and day into night; sleep when they should wake, and wake when they should sleep; attending more to chamberings and banquetings, than to the concerns of the state.

Does any of this sound familiar in what is going on in todays goings on in our country. Sometimes you have to look at what is going on in way back then in the time the bible was written and see just similar things were then to how they are now, sometimes not all that different.
