D. Correction concerning Those Walking Disorderly

6 Now we charge you, brothers, in the aname of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you bkeep away from every brother 1walking cdisorderly and not according to the 2dthings which were handed down to you and which you received from us.

7 For you yourselves know how you ought to aimitate us, because we were 1not disorderly among you;

8 Nor did we eat bread as a gift from anyone, but in alabor and hardship we bworked night and day so that we would not be cburdensome to any of you;

9 Not because we do not have the aright, but in order that we might give ourselves to you as a bpattern that you might cimitate us.

10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this acharge, that if anyone does not want to work, neither should he beat.

11 For we hear of some walking among you adisorderly, doing no work at all, but being 1bbusybodies.

12 Now such ones we acharge and bexhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to cwork with dquietness and eeat their own bread.

13 But you, brothers, do not alose heart in doing good.

14 And if anyone does anot obey our word through this letter, mark this one so as 1bnot to mingle with him, in order that he may be ashamed.

15 Yet do not regard him as an enemy, but aadmonish him as a brother.
