2nd Thessalonians, Chapter 3

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

2: All men have not faith - And all men who have not are 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 naturally disposes.

12: Work quietly - Letting the concerns of other people alone.

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.
