In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers, to keep away from every brother who is idle and who does not live according to the teaching you received from us. (2 Thessalonians 3:6)

If a man is lazy, the rafters sag; if his hands are idle, the house leaks. Ecclesiastes 10:18)

Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. (Proverbs 10:4)

The fool folds his hands and ruins himself. (Ecclesiastes 4:5)

Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in slave labor. (Proverbs 12:24)

If a man will not work, he shall not eat.
(2 Thessalonians 3:10)

A sluggard does not plow in season; so at harvest time he looks but finds nothing. (Proverbs 20:4)

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. (Proverbs 6:6-8)

As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is a sluggard to those who send him. (Proverbs 10:26)

The sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the desires of the diligent are fully satisfied. (Proverbs 13:4)

How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest - and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. (Proverbs 6:9-11)

Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.  (Proverbs 19:15)

Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare. (Proverbs 20:13)

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest - and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man.  (Proverbs 24:33-34)

As a door turns on its hinges, so a sluggard turns on his bed. (Proverbs 26:14)

We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. (Hebrews 6:12)
