    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:12

    Y a los tales denunciamos y rogamos en el Seor nuestro, Jess, el Cristo, que, trabajando con silencio, coman su pan.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 3:12

    Verse 12. With quietness they
    work] meta hsuciav? With silence; leaving their tale-bearing and officious intermeddling. Less noise and more work! That-they work, and eat their own bread.] Their own bread, because earned by their own honest industry. What a degrading thing to live on the bounty or mercy of another, while a man is able to acquire his own livelihood! He who can submit to this has lost the spirit of independence; and has in him a beggar's heart, and is capable of nothing but base and beggarly actions. Witness the great mass of the people of England, who by their dependence on the poor rates are, from being labourious, independent, and respect able, become idle, profligate, and knavish; the propagators and perpetrators of crime; a discredit to the nation, and a curse to society. The apostle's command is a cure for such; and the Church of God should discountenance such, and disown them.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Now them that are such , &c.] For this was not the
    case and character of them all. Did such practices generally obtain, no community, civil or religious, could subsist. And the apostle wisely distinguishes them from others, that the innocent might not be involved in the charge. We command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ ; using both authority and entreaty; taking every way to reclaim them, commanding in the name of Christ and beseeching for the sake of Christ that with quietness they work : with their own hands, at their proper callings, and so support themselves, provide for their families, and have something to give to them that are in need; by which means they will live peaceable and quiet lives, in godliness and honesty, and not disturb the peace of neighbourhoods, churches, and families: and eat their own bread ; got by their own labour, and bought with their money, and not the bread of others, or that of idleness.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-15 - Those who have received the
    gospel, are to live according to the gospel. Such as could work, and would not, were not to be maintained i idleness. Christianity is not to countenance slothfulness, which woul consume what is meant to encourage the industrious, and to support the sick and afflicted. Industry in our callings as men, is a duty require by our calling as Christians. But some expected to be maintained i idleness, and indulged a curious and conceited temper. They meddle with the concerns of others, and did much harm. It is a great error an abuse of religion, to make it a cloak for idleness or any other sin The servant who waits for the coming of his Lord aright, must be working as his Lord has commanded. If we are idle, the devil and corrupt heart will soon find us somewhat to do. The mind of man is busy thing; if it is not employed in doing good, it will be doing evil It is an excellent, but rare union, to be active in our own business yet quiet as to other people's. If any refused to labour with quietness, they were to note him with censure, and to separate from his company, yet they were to seek his good by loving admonitions. The Lords is with you while you are with him. Hold on your way, and hold of to the end. We must never give over, or tire in our work. It will be time enough to rest when we come to heaven.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. With quietness -
    work. See on study to be quiet, 1 Thessalonians iv. 11.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:12 {We command and
    exhort} (paraggellomen kai parakaloumen). Paul asserts his authority as an apostle and pleads as a man and minister. {That with quietness they work, and eat their own bread} (hina meta hsuchias ergazomenoi ton heaut"n arton esqiwsin). Substance of the command and exhortation by hina and the present subjunctive esqiwsin. Literally, {that working with quietness they keep on eating their own bread}. The precise opposite of their conduct in verse #11.
