Exhortation

1 1Finally, brethren, 2pray for us that 3the word of the Lord will aspread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; 2 and that we will be 4rescued from bperverse and evil men; for not all have cfaith. 3 But 5the Lord is faithful, dand He will strengthen and protect you efrom 6the evil one. 4 We have 7confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you 8are doing and will continue to do what we command. 5 May the Lord 9direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ. 6 Now we command you, brethren, 10in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you f11keep away from every brother who gleads an h12unruly life and not according to 13the tradition which iyou received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to j14follow our example, because we did not act in an undisciplined manner among you, 8 nor did we 15eat kanyone's bread lwithout paying for it, but with 16labor and hardship we kept 17working night and day so that we would not be a burden to any of you; 9 not because we do not have 18the right to this, but in order to offer ourselves 19as a model for you, so that you would mfollow our example. 10 For even 20when we were with you, we used to give you this order: 21if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
