1 Thessalonians 4:11; 2 Thessalonians 3:8; 2 Thessalonians 3:11-12

11 and to aspire bto live quietly, and cto mind your own affairs, and dto work with your hands, as we instructed you,


nor did we eat anyone's bread without paying for it, but ywith toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you.


11 For we hear that some among you cwalk in idleness, not busy at work, but dbusybodies. 12 Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.1
