2 Thessalonians 3:6-15

NCV 6 Brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ we command you to stay away from any believer who refuses to work and does not follow the teaching we gave you. NIV 6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. NCV 7 You yourselves know that you should live as we live. We were not lazy when we were with you. NIV 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, NCV 8 And when we ate another person's food, we always paid for it. We worked very hard night and day so we would not be an expense to any of you. NIV 8 nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. NCV 9 We had the right to ask you to help us, but we worked to take care of ourselves so we would be an example for you to follow. NIV 9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate. NCV 10 When we were with you, we gave you this rule: "Anyone who refuses to work should not eat." NIV 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” NCV 11 We hear that some people in your group refuse to work. They do nothing but busy themselves in other people's lives. NIV 11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. NCV 12 We command those people and beg them in the Lord Jesus Christ to work quietly and earn their own food. NIV 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. NCV 13 But you, brothers and sisters, never become tired of doing good. NIV 13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good. NCV 14 If some people do not obey what we tell you in this letter, then take note of them. Have nothing to do with them so they will feel ashamed. NIV 14 Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. NCV 15 But do not treat them as enemies. Warn them as fellow believers. NIV 15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.
