13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. (A)Be at peace among yourselves. 14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish (B)the idle,[a] (C)encourage the fainthearted, (D)help the weak, (E)be patient with them all. 15 See that (F)no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always (G)seek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16 (H)Rejoice always, 17 (I)pray without ceasing, 18 (J)give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 (K)Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise (L)prophecies, 21 but (M)test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.

23 Now may (N)the God of peace himself (O)sanctify you completely, and may your (P)whole (Q)spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at (R)the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
