1: May run - Go on swiftly, without any interruption. And
be glorified - Acknowledged as divine, and bring forth much fruit.

more or less unreasonable and wicked men.
3: Who will stablish you - That cleave to him by faith.
And guard you from the evil one - And all his instruments.
4: We trust in the Lord concerning you - Thus only should
we trust in any man.
5: Now the Lord - The Spirit, whose proper work this is.
Direct - Lead you straight forward. Into the patience of Christ
- Of which he set you a pattern.
6: That walketh disorderly - Particularly by not working.
Not according to the tradition he received of us - The admonition
we gave, both by word of mouth, and in our former epistle.
10: Neither let him eat - Do not maintain him in idleness.
11: Doing nothing, but being busybodies - To which idleness
12: Work quietly - Letting the concerns of other people
14: Have no company with him - No intimacy, no familiarity,
no needless correspondence.
15: Admonish him as a brother - Tell him lovingly of the
reason why you shun him.
16: The Lord of peace - Christ. Give you peace by all
means - In every way and manner.
