Final Instructions and Greetings

17 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles xcontrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; yavoid them.

I wrote to you in my letter jnot to associate with sexually immoral people 10 knot at all meaning lthe sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, msince then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone nwho bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindlernot even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging ooutsiders? pIs it not those inside the church1 whom you are to judge? 13 God judges2 those outside. qPurge the evil person from among you.

Warning Against Idleness

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.

14 If anyone does not obey what we say in this letter, take note of that person, and fhave nothing to do with him, that he may be ashamed.

10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, rdo not receive him into your house or give him any greeting,
