Two are better than one, because they have a good wage for their labor. Bible see other translations

“wage.” The word “wage” is used in a broader sense than just the wages paid for work, but any “wage” or benefit one gets from work. But there is clearly also the idea that people will get paid for the good work they do, even by God on Judgment Day. In contrast, the “wages” of sin is death (Rom. 6:23).
