2 Thessalonians 3:9–12
9 not because we do not have lauthority, but to make ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are mbusybodies. 12 Now those who are such we command and 3exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ nthat they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
