Christian conduct

1AND now, friends, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have everywhere the swift and glorious success it has had among you,

2and that we may be rescued from wrong-headed and wicked people; for not all have faith.

3But the Lord keeps faith, and he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one;

4and in the Lord we have confidence about you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we tell you.

5May the Lord direct your hearts towards God's love and the steadfastness of Christ.

6These are our instructions to you, friends, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: hold aloof from every Christian who falls into idle habits, and disregards the tradition you received from us.

7You yourselves know how you ought to follow our example: you never saw us idling;

8we did not accept free hospitality from anyone; night and day in toil and drudgery we worked for a living, rather than be a burden to any of you --

9not because we do not have the right to maintenance, but to set an example for you to follow.

10Already during our stay with you we laid down this rule: anyone who will not work shall not eat.

11We mention this because we hear that some of you are idling their time away, minding everybody's business but their own.

12We instruct and urge such people in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down to work and earn a living.

13My friends, you must never tire of doing right.

14If anyone disobeys the instructions given in my letter, single him out, and have nothing to do with him until he is ashamed of himself.

15I do not mean treat him as an enemy, but admonish him as one of the family.

16May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in all ways. The Lord be with you all.

17This greeting is in my own handwriting; all genuine letters of mine bear the same signature -- Paul.

18The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
