2 Thessalonians 3
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1As to the rest, pray, brothers, concerning us, that the word of the LORD may run and may be glorified, as also with you, 2and that we may be delivered from the unreasonable and evil men, for not all [are] of the faith; 3but faithful is the LORD who will establish you, and will guard [you] from the evil [one]; 4and we now have confidence in the LORD, that which we command you both do and will do; 5and the LORD direct your hearts to the love of God, and to the endurance of the Christ.

6And we command you, brothers, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not after the tradition that you received from us, 7for you have known how it is necessary to imitate us, because we did not act disorderly among you; 8nor did we eat bread of anyone for nothing, but in labor and in travail, working night and day, not to be chargeable to any of you; 9not because we have no authority, but that we might give ourselves to you [as] a pattern, to imitate us; 10for even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if anyone is not willing to work, neither let him eat, 11for we hear of some walking disorderly among you, working nothing, but being busybodies, 12and such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ, that working with quietness, they may eat their own bread; 13and you, brothers, may you not be weary doing well,

14and if anyone does not obey our word through the letter, note this one, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed, 15and do not count as an enemy, but admonish as a brother;

16and may the LORD of peace Himself always give to you peace in every way; the LORD [is] with you all!

17The salutation by the hand of me, Paul, which is a sign in every letter; thus I write. 18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you all! Amen.
