Jeremiah’s Girdle

“For even when we were with you, we commanded this to you: If anyone does not desire to work, neither let him eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

My quoting of Swinnock is not a promotion of him as a true Christian.  He writes:

“He that like a bodylouse, lives upon others’ sweat, is like Jeremiah’s girdle — good for nothing” (George Swinnock, Works).
