Christian Conduct

12 But we request of you, brethren, that you a1appreciate those 2who diligently labor among you, and 3have charge over you in the Lord and give you binstruction, 13 and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. 4Live in peace with one another. 14 We urge you, brethren, admonish 5the cunruly, encourage 6the fainthearted, help 7the weak, be 8patient with everyone. 15 See that 9no one repays another with evil for evil, but always 10seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. 16 11Rejoice always; 17 12pray without ceasing; 18 in everything 13give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 14Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise 15prophetic dutterances. 21 But 16examine everything carefully; 17hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every eform of evil. 23 Now 18may the God of peace 19Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your 20spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, 21without blame at 22the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 23Faithful is He who 24calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 25 Brethren, 25pray for usf. 26 26Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss. 27 I adjure you by the Lord to 27have this letter read to all the 28brethren. 28 29The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
