2 Thessalonians 1:5; 2 Thessalonians 1:11; 2 Thessalonians 3:1; 2 Thessalonians 3:10
This is a plain indication of God's righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering.
To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power,
Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you;
For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
