17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and [a]hindrances (A)contrary to the teaching which you learned, and (B)turn away from them. 18 For such men are (C)slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of (D)their own [b]appetites; and by their (E)smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. 19 For the report of your obedience (F)has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but (G)I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. 20 (H)The God of peace will soon crush (I)Satan under your feet.

(J)The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.
