Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Thessalonians 3:13

_ _ be not weary — The oldest manuscripts read, “Be not cowardly in”; do not be wanting in strenuousness in doing well. Edmunds explains it: Do not culpably neglect to do well, namely, with patient industry do your duty in your several callings. In contrast to the “disorderly, not-working busybodies” (2 Thessalonians 3:11; compare Galatians 6:9).
