Thessalonians Chapter 3
1 Finallybrethrenpray for usthat the word of the Lord mayhave free courseand be glorifiedeven as it is with you
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked menfor all men have not faith.
3 But the Lord is faithfulwho shall stablish youand keep youfrom evil.
4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching youthat ye bothdo and will do the things which we command you.
5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of Godand intothe patient waiting for Christ.
6 Now we command youbrethrenin the name of our Lord JesusChristthat ye withdraw yourselves from every brother thatwalketh disorderlyand not after the tradition which hereceived of us.
7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow usfor we behavednot ourselves disorderly among you
8 Neither did we eat any man s bread for noughtbut wroughtwith labour and travail night and daythat we might not bechargeable to any of you
9 Not because we have not powerbut to make ourselves anensample unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with youthis we commanded youthat ifany would not workneither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among youdisorderlyworking not at allbut are busybodies.
12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord JesusChristthat with quietness they workand eat their ownbread.
13 But yebrethrenbe not weary in well doing.
14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistlenote thatmanand have no company with himthat he may be ashamed.
15 Yet count him not as an enemybut admonish him as a brother.
16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by allmeans. The Lord be with you all.
17 The salutation of Paul with mine own handwhich is the tokenin every epistleso I write.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
