2 Thessalonians 3:11-12

Context
3:11 For we hear that some among you are living an undisciplined life, 1  not doing their own work but meddling in the work of others. 2  3:12 Now such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to work quietly and so provide their own food to eat. 3 

1 tn Grk “walking in an undisciplined way” (“walking” is a common NT idiom for one’s way of life or conduct).

2 tn There is a play on words in the Greek: “working at nothing, but working around,” “not keeping busy but being busybodies.”

3 tn Grk “that by working quietly they may eat their own bread.”
