  • 1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have a free course, and be glorified, just as it is with you,
  • 2 and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; because not everyone has faith.
  • 3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and keep you from evil.
  • 4 And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, both that you do and will do the things that we command you.
  • 5 Now may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the perseverance for Christ.
  • 6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not according to the tradition which he received from us.
  • 7 Because you yourselves know how you ought to follow us, because we were not disorderly among you;
  • 8 Neither did we eat anyone’s bread free of charge, but worked with labor and toil night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you,
  • 9 not because we do not have authority, but to make of ourselves an example of how you should follow us.
  • 10 Because, even when we were with you, we commanded you this: That if anyone will not work, neither should he eat.
  • 11 Because, we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.
  • 12 Now those who are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work in quietness and eat their own bread.
  • 13 But as for you, brethren, do not become weary in doing good.
  • 14 And if anyone does not obey our word in this letter, note that person, and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed.
  • 15 Yet count him not as an enemy, but instruct him as a brother.
  • 16 Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all.
  • 17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is confirmation in every letter; 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.
