Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
12 Now we ask you, brothers, to give recognition to those who labor among you and lead you in the Lord and admonish you, 12 Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you.
13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.
14 And we exhort you, brothers: warn those who are lazy, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 14 And we urge you, brothers, warn those who are idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
15 See to it that no one repays evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.
16 Rejoice always! 16 Be joyful always;
17 Pray constantly. 17 pray continually;
18 Give thanks in everything, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 18 give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
19 Don't stifle the Spirit. 19 Do not put out the Spirit's fire;
20 Don't despise prophecies, 20 do not treat prophecies with contempt.
21 but test all things. Hold on to what is good. 21 Test everything. Hold on to the good.
22 Stay away from every form of evil. 22 Avoid every kind of evil.
