箴言廿:13

不要貪睡、免致貧窮.眼要睜開、你就喫飽。

Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake
and you will have food to spare.
 
 

箴言廿四:30~34

30我經過懶惰人的田地、無知人的葡萄園.31荊棘長滿了地皮、刺草遮蓋了田面、石牆也坍塌了.32我看見就留心思想、我看著就領了訓誨。33再睡片時、打盹片時、抱著手躺臥片時、34你的貧窮、就必如強盜速來、你的缺乏、彷彿拿兵器的人來到。

30 I went past the field of the sluggard,
past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgment;
31 thorns had come up everywhere,
the ground was covered with weeds,
and the stone wall was in ruins.
32 I applied my heart to what I observed and learned
a lesson from what I saw:
33 A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest--
34 and poverty will come on you like a bandit
and scarcity like an armed man.
 
 
 

以弗所書四:28

從前偷竊的、不要再偷.總要勞力、親手作正經事、就可有餘分給那缺少的人。

He who has been stealing must steal no longer,
but must work, doing something useful with his own hands,
that he may have something to share with those in need.
 
 
 

提摩太後書二:6

勞力的農夫、理當先得糧食。

The hardworking farmer should be the first to
receive a share of the crops.
 
 
 

箴言十三:23

窮人耕種多得糧食、但因不義有消滅的。

A poor man's field may produce abundant food,
but injustice sweeps it away.
 
 
 

帖撒羅尼迦後書三:10-12

10 我們在你們那裡的時候、曾吩咐你們說、若有人不肯作工、就不可喫飯。
11 因我們聽說、在你們中間有人不按規矩而行、甚麼工都不作、反倒專管閒事。
12 我們靠主耶穌基督、吩咐勸戒這樣的人、要安靜作工、喫自己的飯。

10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule:
 "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."
11 We hear that some among you are idle.
They are not busy; they are busybodies.
12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ
to settle down and earn the bread they eat.
 
 
 

箴言十:4~5

4 手懶的、要受貧窮.手勤的、卻要富足。
5 夏天聚斂的、是智慧之子.收割時沉睡的、是貽羞之子。

4 Lazy hands make a man poor,
but diligent hands bring wealth.
5 He who gathers crops in summer is a wise son,
but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.
 
 
 

箴言十三:4

懶惰人羨慕、卻無所得.殷勤人必得豐裕。

The sluggard craves and gets nothing,
but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied.
 
 
 

箴言廿八:19

耕種自己田地的、必得飽食.追隨虛浮的、足受窮乏。

He who works his land will have abundant food,
but the one who chases fantasies will have his fill of poverty.
 
 
 

羅馬書十二:11

殷勤不可懶惰.要心裡火熱.常常服事主。

Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor,
serving the Lord.
