2 Thessalonians 3May run - Go on swiftly, without any interruption. And be glorified - Acknowledged as divine, and bring forth much fruit. All men have not faith - And all men who have not are more or less unreasonable and wicked men. Who will stablish you - That cleave to him by faith. And guard you from the evil one - And all his instruments. We trust in the Lord concerning you - Thus only should we trust in any man. 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. 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. Neither let him eat - Do not maintain him in idleness. Doing nothing, but being busybodies - To which idleness naturally disposes. Work quietly - Letting the concerns of other people alone. Have no company with him - No intimacy, no familiarity, no needless correspondence. Admonish him as a brother - Tell him lovingly of the reason why you shun him. The Lord of peace - Christ. Give you peace by all means - In every way and manner.
