"the New Testament hates what it calls 'busybodies'."

2 Thessalonians 3:11-12 (KJV): "We hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread."

1 Timothy 5:13 (KJV): "And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not."

1 Peter 4:15 (KJV): "Let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters."
