2 Thessalonians 3:8-9

Context
3:8 and we did not eat anyone’s food without paying. 1  Instead, in toil and drudgery we worked 2  night and day in order not to burden any of you. 3:9 It was not because we do not have that right, but to give ourselves as an example for you to imitate. 3 

1 tn Grk “we did not eat bread freely from anyone.”

2 tn Grk “but working,” as a continuation of the previous sentence. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started with the word “Instead” in the translation.

3 tn Grk “an example for you to imitate us.”
