‘So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.
“Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.”
He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground.”
2 Kings 9:26
‘Surely I have seen yesterday the blood of Naboth and the blood of his sons,’ says the LORD, ‘and I will repay you in this property,’ says the LORD. Now then, take and cast him into the property, according to the word of the LORD.”
They have poured out their blood like water round about Jerusalem;
And there was no one to bury them.
“Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.
Then they made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, and practiced divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking Him.
“O earth, do not cover my blood, And let there be no resting place for my cry.
‘You will be fuel for the fire; your blood will be in the midst of the land You will not be remembered, for I, the LORD, have spoken.'”
“I will also make the land drink the discharge of your blood As far as the mountains, And the ravines will be full of you.
“For her blood is in her midst; She placed it on the bare rock; She did not pour it on the ground To cover it with dust.
“That it may cause wrath to come up to take vengeance, I have put her blood on the bare rock, That it may not be covered.”
“For I will send pestilence to her
And blood to her streets,
And the wounded will fall in her midst
By the sword upon her on every side;
Then they will know that I am the LORD.
“And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”
He will rescue their life from oppression and violence,
And their blood will be precious in his sight;
Thus says the Lord GOD, “Because your lewdness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered through your harlotries with your lovers and with all your detestable idols, and because of the blood of your sons which you gave to idols,
“That your foot may shatter them in blood, The tongue of your dogs may have its portion from your enemies.”
And a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak;
A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years,
And a woman who had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and could not be healed by anyone,
‘And when the blood of Your witness Stephen was being shed, I also was standing by approving, and watching out for the coats of those who were slaying him.’
and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.

Serve the Lord in your work by working hard for Him.
1. Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
2. Colossians 3:23-24 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ.
3. 1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
4. Romans 12:11-12 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically. Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.
Don’t talk about it. Be about it.
5. Proverbs 14:23-24 All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. The wealth of the wise is their crown, but the folly of fools yields folly.
6. Philippians 2:14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing,
7. 2 Timothy 2:6-7 And hardworking farmers should be the first to enjoy the fruit of their labor. Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you understand all these things.
8. Proverbs 10:4-5 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent hands bring wealth. He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.
9. Proverbs 6:7-8 Though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work, they labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter.
10. Proverbs 12:24 Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.
11. Proverbs 28:19-20 A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty. The trustworthy person will get a rich reward, but a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble.
There is a difference between working hard and overworking yourself which Scripture doesn’t condone.
12. Psalm 127:1-2 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
13. Ecclesiastes 1:2-3 “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!” What do people get for all their hard work under the sun?
Work hard to help others in need.
14. Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
Don’t be a lazy couch potato.
15. Proverbs 13:4 Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.
16. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 While we were with you, we gave you the order: “Whoever doesn’t want to work shouldn’t be allowed to eat.”
17. 2 Thessalonians 3:11-12 We hear that some people in your group refuse to work. They are doing nothing except being busy in the lives of others. Our instruction to them is to stop bothering others, to start working and earn their own food. It is by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ that we are urging them to do this.
18. Proverbs 18:9-10 A lazy person is as bad as someone who destroys things. The name of the LORD is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.
19. Proverbs 20:13 If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat!
We must never work hard in wickedness.
20. Proverbs 13:11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
21. Proverbs 4:14-17 Don’t take the path of the wicked; don’t follow those who do evil. Stay away from that path; don’t even go near it. Turn around and go another way. The wicked cannot sleep until they have done something evil. They will not rest until they bring someone down. Evil and violence are their food and drink.
22.Philippians 4:13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
23. Revelation 2:2-3 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
24. 1 Corinthians 4:12-13 We work wearily with our own hands to earn our living. We bless those who curse us. We are patient with those who abuse us. We appeal gently when evil things are said about us. Yet we are treated like the world’s garbage, like everybody’s trash–right up to the present moment.
25. Genesis 29:18-21 Jacob loved Rachel. And he said, “I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel.” Laban said, “It is better that I give her to you than that I should give her to any other man; stay with me.” So Jacob served seven years for Rachel, and they seemed to him but a few days because of the love he had for her. Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife that I may go in to her, for my time is completed.”
