Did. 12:2-5 reads something like:
2 If the one who comes is simply passing by, help him as much as you
can. But he should not stay with you more than two or three days, if need
3 But if he wants to remain with you, and has a trade, let him work and
4 But if he does not have a trade, use your understanding to realize in
advance that no idle Christian is to live with you.
5 EI D' OU QELEI OUTW POIEIN, XRISTEMPOROS ESTI. PROSEXETE APO TWN
TOIOUTWN [But if he does not want to behave like this, he is a
Christmonger. Avoid such people.]
