Paul’s Request for Prayer

3Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord's message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you.G3063G80G4336G4012G2257G2443G3056G2962G5143G2532G1392G2532G2531G4314G5209 2Pray, too, that we will be rescued from wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer.G2532G2443G4506G575G824G2532G4190G444G1063G3956G3756G4102 3But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.G1161G2962G2076G4103G3739G4741G5209G2532G5442G575G4190 4And we are confident in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we commanded you.G1161G3982G1722G2962G1909G5209G3754G2532G4160G2532G4160G3739G3853G5213 5May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.G1161G2962G2720G5216G2588G1519G26G2316G2532G1519G5281G5547

An Exhortation to Proper Living

6And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don't follow the tradition they received from us.G1161G3853G5213G80G1722G3686G2257G2962G2424G5547G4724G5209G575G3956G80G4043G814G2532G3361G2596G3862G3739G3880G3844G2257 7For you know that you ought to imitate us. We were not idle when we were with you.G1063G846G1492G4459G1163G3401G2248G3754G812G3756G812G1722G5213 8We never accepted food from anyone without paying for it. We worked hard day and night so we would not be a burden to any of you.G3761G5315G3844G5100G740G1432G235G2038G1722G2873G2532G3449G3571G2532G2250G4314G1912G3361G1912G5100G5216 9We certainly had the right to ask you to feed us, but we wanted to give you an example to follow.G3756G3754G2192G3756G1849G235G2443G1325G1438G5179G5213G1519G3401G2248 10Even while we were with you, we gave you this command: "Those unwilling to work will not get to eat."G1063G2532G3753G2258G4314G5209G5124G3853G5213G3754G1536G2309G3756G2038G3366G2068 11Yet we hear that some of you are living idle lives, refusing to work and meddling in other people's business.G1063G191G5100G4043G1722G5213G814G2038G3367G235G4020 12We command such people and urge them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and work to earn their own living.G1161G5108G3853G2532G3870G1223G2257G2962G2424G5547G2443G3326G2271G2038G2068G1438G740 13As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.G1161G5210G80G1573G3361G1573G2569 14Take note of those who refuse to obey what we say in this letter. Stay away from them so they will be ashamed.G1161G1536G5219G3756G2257G3056G1223G1992G4593G5126G2532G4874G3361G4874G846G2443G1788 15Don't think of them as enemies, but warn them as you would a brother or sister.G2532G2233G3361G5613G2190G235G3560G5613G80
