“That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:12 Decently - That they may have no pretence to say, (but they will say it still,) This religion makes men idle, and brings them to beggary. And may want nothing - Needful for life and godliness. What Christian desires more?
1Th 4:12 That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without. Becomingly in the sight of those without. It would be a reproach if the heathen could say, "This new religion makes men idle and brings them to beggary". And [that] ye may have lack of nothing. The necessaries supplied by labor are especially meant.
