Exhortation

1 aFinally, brethren, bpray for us that cthe word of the Lord will Ispread rapidly and be glorified, just as [it did] also with you; 2 and that we will be arescued from Iperverse and evil men; for not all have IIfaith. 3 But athe Lord is faithful, Iand He will strengthen and protect you IIfrom bthe evil [one]. 4 We have aconfidence in the Lord concerning you, that you bare doing and will [continue to] do what we command. 5 May the Lord adirect your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.

6 ¶ Now we command you, brethren, ain the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you Ibkeep away from every brother who IIleads an IIIcunruly life and not according to dthe tradition which IVyou received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to Iafollow our example, because we did not act in an undisciplined manner among you, 8 nor did we aeat Ianyone’s bread IIwithout paying for it, but with blabor and hardship we [kept] cworking night and day so that we would not be a burden to any of you; 9 not because we do not have athe right [to this], but in order to offer ourselves bas a model for you, so that you would Ifollow our example. 10 For even awhen we were with you, we used to give you this order: bif anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. 11 For we hear that some among you are aleading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like bbusybodies. 12 Now such persons we command and aexhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to bwork in quiet fashion and eat their own bread. 13 But as for you, abrethren, bdo not grow weary of doing good.

6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; 8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. 14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet count [him] not as an enemy, but admonish [him] as a brother.
