nor for nought did we eat bread of any one, but in labour and in travail, night and day working, not to be chargeable to any of you;
not because we have not authority, but that ourselves a pattern we might give to you, to imitate us;
for even when we were with you, this we did command you, that if any one is not willing to work, neither let him eat,
for we hear of certain walking among you disorderly, nothing working, but over working,
and such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness working, their own bread they may eat;
and ye, brethren, may ye not be weary doing well,
and if any one do not obey our word through the letter, this one note ye, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed,
and as an enemy count [him] not, but admonish ye [him] as a brother;
and may the Lord of the peace Himself give to you the peace always in every way; the Lord [is] with you all!
The salutation by the hand of me, Paul, which is a sign in every letter; thus I write;
the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you all! Amen.
