For those who “works with a negligent hand” will be punished by poverty too (Proverbs 10:4).  For those who are “not willing to work” is not allowed to enjoy food or harvest (2 Thessalonians 3:10). In Proverbs 21:25, it says, “the desire of the sluggard kills” a man “for his hands refuse to labor.”
