|2 Thessalonian 3: 7 - 12
||For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us; we were not idle when we were with you,
||we did not eat any one's bread without paying, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not burden any of you.
||It was not because we have not that right, but to give you in our conduct an example to imitate.
||For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: If any one will not work, let him not eat.
||For we hear that some of you are living in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work.
||Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work in quietness and to earn their own living.
