For the rest, then, brethren, we beg you and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, even as ye have received from us how ye ought to walk and pleasee God, even as ye also do walk, that ye would abound still more.

e
I do not say "to please," because then pleasing God would be a distinct object. Here it is rather "to walk so as to please." The point is, the "how," that is, the manner of doing it, not that it ought to be an object, however true that may be.

even as also ye do walk: Text. Rec. omits this grave clause, so encouraging to those addressed. The authority for it is overwhelming. (Epist. to the Thessalonians, p.39)
even as also ye do walk: there is a short clause omitted in Text. Rec. and Authorized Version which is here [in the RV] rightly given, "even as ye do walk." (Bible Treasury 14:15)
