1 Thessalonians 5:14-22

5:14 We exhort you, brothers, admonish the disorderly, encourage the fainthearted, support the weak, be patient toward all. 5:15 See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good, for one another, and for all.

5:16 Rejoice always. 5:17 Pray without ceasing. 5:18 In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you. 5:19 Don’t quench the Spirit. 5:20 Don’t despise prophesies. 5:21 Test all things, and hold firmly that which is good. 5:22 Abstain from every form of evil.

n.b.: the Greek words tranlsated here as “admonish”, νουθετεῖτε, is more like “explain” or “give reason to”.
