Biblical illustration of sloth

In Proverbs there is a fairy humorous illustration of a lazy person:

Pro 19:24 A lazy man buries his hand in the bowl, And will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.

The picture is a man eating food from a bowl. I always imagine a large man laying on a reclining couch, clothed in purple and eating grapes. The man reaches over to grab a grape, but as soon as his hand is in the bowl he pauses. “Meh”, he remarks. And then he just leaves his hand in the bowl.
