9 Now concerning love of the brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anyone write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another;
10and indeed you do love all the brothers and sisters throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, beloved, to do so more and more,
11to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we directed you,
12so that you may behave properly towards outsiders and be dependent on no one.
