1 Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the utterance of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for not all men have supernatural belief and trust.
3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.
4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that you both do and will do the things which we command you. *
5 And the Lord direct your innermost minds into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
6 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. *
7 For yourselves know how you ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you; *
8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for naught; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample to you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any desire to not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now those who are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
13 But you, brothers, be not weary in well doing.
14 And if any man obey not our utterance by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. *
15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
16 Now the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
18 The divine power for righteousness, holiness, and redemption of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
The second epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.

Young's Literal


1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have [free] course, and be glorified, even as [it is] with you:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all [men] have not faith.
3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep [you] from evil.
4 And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.
5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
13 But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
15 Yet count [him] not as an enemy, but admonish [him] as a brother.
16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord [be] with you all.
17 The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write.
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen. [The second [epistle] to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.]

King James Version


1 As to the rest, pray ye, brethren, concerning us, that the word of the Lord may run and may be glorified, as also with you,
2 and that we may be delivered from the unreasonable and evil men, for the faith [is] not of all;
3 and stedfast is the Lord, who shall establish you, and shall guard [you] from the evil;
4 and we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that the things that we command you ye both do and will do;
5 and the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God, and to the endurance of the Christ.
6 And we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to withdraw yourselves from every brother disorderly walking, and not after the deliverance that ye received from us,
7 for yourselves have known how it behoveth [you] to imitate us, because we did not act disorderly among you;
8 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;
9 not because we have not authority, but that ourselves a pattern we might give to you, to imitate us;
10 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,
11 for we hear of certain walking among you disorderly, nothing working, but over working,
12 and such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness working, their own bread they may eat;
13 and ye, brethren, may ye not be weary doing well,
14 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,
15 and as an enemy count [him] not, but admonish ye [him] as a brother;
16 and may the Lord of the peace Himself give to you the peace always in every way; the Lord [is] with you all!
17 The salutation by the hand of me, Paul, which is a sign in every letter; thus I write;
18 the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [is] with you all! Amen.
