2 thessalonians3
  • 1Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
  • 2Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
  • 3And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
  • 4But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
  • 5And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.
  • 6And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
  • 7Now 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.
  • 8For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
  • 9Neither 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:
  • 10Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
  • 11For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
  • 12For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
  • 13Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
  • 14But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
  • 15And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
  • 16Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
  • 17Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
  • 18The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
