Quiet Fashion November 15, 2009

“Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to work in quiet fashion and eat their own bread.” 2 Thess 3:12

During Bible Study, we were taught how to check on Greek translations and because I became so drawn to the term “quiet fashion” I went to check it out:

In quiet fashion = hēsychia (ἡσυχία)

a) Quietness: description of the life of one who stays at home doing his own work, and does not officiously meddle with the affairs of others

b) Silence

Blue Letter Bible. “Dictionary and Word Search for hēsychia (Strong’s 2271)“. Blue Letter Bible. 1996-2009. 15 Nov 2009. < http:// www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?
Strongs=G2271&t=NASB >

Now if that is not a stamp of approval on the stay-at-home, free-from-meddlesome-office-politics freelancing life, I don’t know what is 😉

    I think it’d make a nice name for a vintagey sort of clothes label too….
