Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1From now on, brethren, pray for us, that the word of Our Lord would run and be glorified in every place as it is with you, 2And that we would be saved from evil and vicious men, for the faith does not belong to everyone. 3But THE LORD JEHOVAH is faithful, who will keep you and deliver you from evil. 4But we trust you in Our Lord, that whatever we command you, you do and you will do. 5And Our Lord will direct your hearts into the love of God and to the Gospel preaching of The Messiah.
6But we command you, my brethren, in the name of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, that you will be separate from every brother who walks wickedly and not according to the commandments that they received* from us, 7For you know how it is right to imitate us, for we have not walked wickedly among you, 8Neither have we eaten the bread of any of you without charge, but we were working with labor and toil, by night and by day, that we would not be a burden to anyone of you, 9Not because we did not have authority, but that we might give you an example by our lives, that you may imitate us. 10For when we were with you, we had commanded you this, that no one who is unwilling to work shall eat. 11For we hear that there are some among you who walk wickedly and do not labor at all, but are worthless; 12But such we command and beseech them in Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, that they shall work quietly and eat their bread. 13But you, my brethren, do not be weary to do what is excellent,
14And if a man disobeys these words in this letter, let this one be separated from you, neither take part with him, that he may be ashamed, 15And do not hold him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
16But The Lord of peace give you peace always in everything. Our Lord be with all of you.
17Greetings, in the writing of my own hand. I, Paulus, have written what is the sign which is in all my epistles; I write in this way: 18The grace of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah be with all of you*. Amen.
