stablish ^... good work and word: The "you," ύμᾶς of the Authorized Version as of the Received Text, wants the testimony of the ancient MSS., Versions, etc., which also restore the true order of the last clause, it would seem, though not with the same certainty. (Epist. to Thessalonians, p.188)
work and word: "Work and word" rightly take the place [in the RV] of "word and work" in the Text. Rec. and Authorized Version. (Bible Treasury 14:16)
