3:1 Brethren, from henceforward pray ye for us, that the word of God run, and be clarified, as it is with you; Furthermore brethren pray for us, that the word of god may have free passage, and be glorified, as it is with you: Furthermore, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free passage, and be glorified, even as it is with you, Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
3:2 and that we be delivered from harmful and evil men; for faith is not of all men. and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and evil men. For all men have not faith: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and evil men: for all men have not faith. And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.
3:3 But the Lord is true, that shall confirm you, and shall keep us from evil. but the lord is faithful, which shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. But the Lord is faithful, which will stablish you, and keep you from evil. But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
3:4 And, brethren, we trust of you in the Lord, for whatever things we command to you, both ye do and shall do. We have confidence through the lord to you-ward, that ye both do, and will do, that which we command you. And we are persuaded of you through the Lord, that ye both do, and will do the things which we command you. And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do, and will do the things which we command you.
3:5 Forsooth the Lord dress your hearts, in the charity of God, and in the patience of Christ. And the lord guide your hearts unto the love of God, and patience of Christ. And the Lord guide your hearts to the love of God, & the waiting for of Christ. And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
3:6 Forsooth, brethren, we announce to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw you from each brother wandering unordinately, and not after the tradition, that they received of us. We require you brethren in the name of our lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh inordinately, and not after the institution which ye received of us. We command you, brethren, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh inordinately, and not after the instruction, which he received of us. Now we command you, brethren, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
3:7 For ye yourselves know, how it behooveth to follow us. For we were not unquiet among you, Ye yourselves know how ye ought to counterfeit us: For we behaved not ourselves inordinately among you. For ye yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves inordinately among you, For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you,
3:8 neither without our own travail we ate bread of any man, but in travail and weariness night and day working, that we grieve none of you. Neither took we bread of any man for nought: but wrought with labour and travail night and day, because we would not be grievous to any of you: Neither took we bread of any man for nought: but we wrought with labour & travail night & day, because we would not be chargeable to any of you. Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nought: but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you.
3:9 Not as we had not power, but that we should give ourselves an ensample to you to follow us. not but that we had authority: but to make ourselves an ensample unto you, to counterfeit us. Not but that we had authority, but that we might make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
3:10 For why and when we were with you, this thing we announced to you, that if any man will not work, neither eat he. For when we were with you, this we warned you of, that if there were any which would not work, that the same should not eat. For even when we were with you, this we warned you of, that if there were any, which would not work, that he should not eat. For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
3:11 Soothly we have heard some among you to wander unquietly, nothing working, but doing curiously. We have heard say no doubt that there are some which walk among you inordinately, and work not at all, but are busybodies. For we heard, that there are some which walk among you inordinately, and work not at all, but are busybodies. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
3:12 Forsooth we announce to them that be such manner, and beseech in the Lord Jesus Christ, that they with silence, working, eat their own bread. Them that are such, we command and exhort in the name of our lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness, and eat their bread. Therefore them that are such, we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness, and eat their own bread. Now them that are such, we command, and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
3:13 But do not ye, brethren, fail well doing. Brethren be not weary in well doing. And ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing. But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
3:14 That if any man obey not to our word sent by epistle, mark ye him, and commune not with him, that he be ashamed; If any man obey not our sayings, send us word of him by a letter: and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed: If any man obey not our sayings, note him by a letter, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed. And if any man obey not our word, by this Epistle note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed,
3:15 and do not ye guess him as an enemy, but reprove ye him as a brother. And count him not as an enemy: but warn him as a brother. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother. Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
3:16 And God himself of peace give to you everlasting peace in all place. The Lord be with you all. The very lord of peace, give you peace always, by all means. The lord be with you all. Now the Lord of peace give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all. Now the Lord of peace himself, give you peace always, by all means. The Lord be with you all.
3:17 My salutation by the hand of Paul; which sign in each epistle I write thus. The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. This is the token in all epistles. So I write. The salutation of me Paul, with mine own hand, which is the token in every Epistle: so I write, The salutation of Paul, with mine own hand, which is the token in every Epistle: so I write.
3:18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. The grace of our lord Jesus be with you all Amen. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, Amen.
