6Now we command you, brethren, 1in the name of our LordJesusChrist, that you a2keepaway from everybrother who bleads an c3unrulylife and not according to 4the traditionwhichdyou received from us.
For you yourselvesknowhow you ought to e5follow our example, because we did not act in an undisciplinedmanneramong you,
8nor did we 6eatfanyone'sbreadgwithoutpaying for it, but with 7labor and hardship we kept 8workingnight and dayso that we would not be a burden to any of you;
not because we do not have9the right to this, but in order to offerourselves10as a model for you, so that you would hfollow our example.
For even11when we were with you, we used to give you thisorder : 12ifanyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
For we hear that someamong you are 13leading an undisciplinedlife, doingnowork at all, but actinglike14busybodies.
12Nowsuchpersons we command and 15exhort in the LordJesusChrist to 16work in quietfashion and eat their ownbread.
But as for you, 17brethren, 18do not growweary of doinggood.
14Ifanyone does not obey our iinstructionj19in thisletter, takespecialnote of that personk20and do not associate with him, so that he will be 21put to shame.
Yet 22do not regard him as an enemy, but l23admonish him as a 24brother.
16Now25may the Lord of peace26Himselfcontinuallygrant you peace in everymcircumstance. 27The Lord be with you all !
