Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. Psalm 104:23
In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground. — We commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. — Study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands.
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. — The night cometh when no man can work.
Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. —Always abounding in the work of the Lord forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
There remaineth … a rest to the people of God. — Unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. — This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing.
