Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nothing: but in labour and in toil we worked night and day, lest we should be chargeable to any of you.
Not as if we had not power: but that we might give ourselves a pattern unto you, to imitate us.
For also, when we were with you, this we declared to you: that, if any man will not work, neither let him eat.
For we have heard there are some among you who walk disorderly: working not at all, but curiously meddling.
Now we charge them that are such and beseech them by the Lord Jesus Christ that, working with silence, they would eat their own bread.
But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.
Yet do not esteem him as an enemy but admonish him as a brother.
Now the Lord of peace himself give you everlasting peace in every place. The Lord be with you all.
The salutation of Paul with my own hand: which is the sign in every epistle. So I write.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
