Warning Against Idleness
6 Now we command you, brothers, sin the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, tthat you keep away from any ubrother vwho is walking in idleness and not in accord with the tradition that you received from us.
19 I will give you mthe keys of the kingdom of heaven, and nwhatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed1 in heaven.”
18 Truly, I say to you, twhatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed1 in heaven.
23 nIf you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”
3 since you seek proof that Christ pis speaking in me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but qis powerful among you.
10 For this reason I write these things while I am away from you, that when I come zI may not have to be asevere in my use of bthe authority that the Lord has given me for building up and not for tearing down.
20 As for those who persist in sin, erebuke them in the presence of all, fso that the rest may stand in fear.
