2 Thessalonians 3:7-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example.1 We were not idle when we were with you, 8 nor did we eat anyone's food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked2 night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help,3 but in order to make ourselves a model for you to follow.4 10 For even when we were with you,5 we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work,6 he shall not eat." 11 We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies.7 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ8 to settle down and earn the bread they eat.9
