Verily, I say unto you, that our God hath condemned man to work, so that, as said Job, the friend and prophet of God: "As the bird is born to fly and the fish to swim, even so is man born to work."
So also David our father, a prophet of God, saith "Eating the labours of our hands we shall be blessed, and it shall be well with us."
Wherefore let everyone work, according to his quality...
