2 Thessalonians - 3


1Final y, brothers, pray for us that the Lord's message may spread quickly, and be received with honouras it was among you; 2and pray that we may be preserved from bigoted and evil people, for not everyone has faith. 3You can rely on the Lord, who wil give you strength and guard you from the evil One, 4and we, in the Lord, have every confidence in you, that you are doing and wil go on doing al that wetel you. 5May the Lord turn your hearts towards the love of God and the perseverance of Christ. 6In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we urge you, brothers, to keep away from any of the brothers wholives an undisciplined life, not in accordance with the tradition you received from us. 7You know how you should take us as your model: we were not undisciplined when we were with you, 8nor did we ever accept food from anyone without paying for it; no, we worked with unsparing energy,night and day, so as not to be a burden on any of you. 9This was not because we had no right to be, but in order to make ourselves a model for you to imitate. 10We urged you when we were with you not to let anyone eat who refused to work. 11Now we hear that there are some of you who are living lives without any discipline, doing no workthemselves but interfering with other people's. 12In the Lord Jesus Christ, we urge and cal on people of this kind to go on quietly working and earningthe food that they eat. 13My brothers, never slacken in doing what is right. 14If anyone refuses to obey what I have written in this letter, take note of him and have nothing to dowith him, so that he wil be ashamed of himself, 15though you are not to treat him as an enemy, but to correct him as a brother. 16May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at al times and in every way. The Lord be with you all. 17This greeting is in my own hand-PAUL. It is the mark of genuineness in every letter; this is my own writing. 18May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
