12 Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living.[a]

13 As for you, brothers, (A)do not grow weary in doing good. 14 If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and (B)have nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed. 15 (C)Do not regard him as an enemy, but (D)warn him as a brother.

Benediction

16 Now may (E)the Lord of peace himself (F)give you peace at all times in every way. (G)The Lord be with you all.
