    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:13

    Y vosotros, hermanos, no os cansis de hacer bien.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 3:13

    Verse 13. Be not weary in well-doing.] While ye
    stretch out no hand of relief to the indolent and lazy, do not forget the real poor - the genuine representatives of an impoverished Christ; and rather relieve a hundred undeserving objects, than pass by one who is a real object of charity.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. But ye,
    brethren , &c.] The rest of the members of the church, who were diligent and industrious in their callings, minded their own business, and did not trouble themselves with other men's matters, took care of themselves, and their families, and were beneficent to others: be not weary in well doing ; which may be understood generally of all well doing, or of doing of every good work; which is well done when done according to the will of God, in faith, and from a principle of love, and in the name and strength of Christ, and with a view to the glory of God: or particularly of acts of beneficence to the poor; for though the idle and lazy should not be relieved, yet the helpless poor should not be neglected. This the apostle observes, lest covetous persons should make an handle of this, and withhold their hands from distributing to any, under a notion of their being idle and disorderly; or lest the saints should be tired, and become weary of doing acts of charity through the ingratitude, moroseness, and ill manners of poor people; (see Galatians 6:9).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 6-15 - Those who have received the
    gospel, are to live according to the gospel. Such as could work, and would not, were not to be maintained i idleness. Christianity is not to countenance slothfulness, which woul consume what is meant to encourage the industrious, and to support the sick and afflicted. Industry in our callings as men, is a duty require by our calling as Christians. But some expected to be maintained i idleness, and indulged a curious and conceited temper. They meddle with the concerns of others, and did much harm. It is a great error an abuse of religion, to make it a cloak for idleness or any other sin The servant who waits for the coming of his Lord aright, must be working as his Lord has commanded. If we are idle, the devil and corrupt heart will soon find us somewhat to do. The mind of man is busy thing; if it is not employed in doing good, it will be doing evil It is an excellent, but rare union, to be active in our own business yet quiet as to other people's. If any refused to labour with quietness, they were to note him with censure, and to separate from his company, yet they were to seek his good by loving admonitions. The Lords is with you while you are with him. Hold on your way, and hold of to the end. We must never give over, or tire in our work. It will be time enough to rest when we come to heaven.

    5210 δε 1161 αδελφοι 80 μη 3361 εκκακησητε 1573 5661 καλοποιουντες 2569 5723

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    13. Be not weary (entraph). With one exception,
    Luke xiii. 1, only in Paul. To faint or lose heart.

    Well doing (kalopoiountev). N.T.o . According to the Greek idiom, doing well, be not weary. Not limited to works of charity, but including Christian conduct generally, as, for instance, steadily attending to their own business, ver. 12.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:13 {But ye, brethren, be not weary in well-doing} (humeis de, adelfoi, me enkakesete kalopoiountes). Emphatic position of humeis in contrast to these piddlers. me and the aorist subjunctive is a prohibition against beginning an act (Robertson, _Grammar_, pp. 851-4). It is a late verb and means to behave badly in, to be cowardly, to lose courage, to flag, to faint, (en, kakos) and outside of #Lu 18:1 in the N.T. is only in Paul's Epistles (#2Th 3:13; 2Co 4:1,16; Ga 6:9; Eph 3:13). It occurs in Polybius. The late verb kalopoiew, to do the fair (kalos) or honorable thing occurs nowhere else in the N.T., but is in the LXX and a late papyrus. Paul uses to kalon poiein in #2Co 13:7; Ga 6:9; Ro 7:21 with the same idea. He has agaqopoiew, to do good, in #1Ti 6:18.
