1 Thessalonians 1

1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians that is in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be to you and peace.

2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers,

3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of our God and Father.

4 We know, beloved brothers, your election by God;

5 For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much conviction. You know what manner of men we were among you for your sake.

6 And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit.

7 So that you were examples to all who believe in Macedonia and Achaia.

8 For the word of the Lord resounded out from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place where the report of your faith toward God has spread; so that we do not need to say anything about it,

9 For they themselves testify about us, what kind of entrance we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God,

10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, who delivered us from the wrath to come.
1 Thessalonians 2

1 You yourselves, brothers, know that our coming to you was not in vain.

2 But even though we had already suffered and were shamefully treated at Philippi, as you know, we were bold in our God to speak the gospel to you with much opposition.

3 For our exhortation did not come from error, nor of impurity, nor in guile [deceit];

4 But as we were approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but pleasing God, who tries our hearts.

5 For we did not come with flattering words at any time, as you know, nor with a pretext for covetousness [seeking your money]; God is our witness.

6 We did not seek the glory of men, not from you or from others, though we might have been a burden to you as the apostles of Christ.

7 But we were gentle among you, even as a mother cherishes her children.

8 So being affectionately solicitous of you, we were willing to impart to you, not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls, because you were so dear to us.

9 For you remember, brothers, our labor and hardship. How we preached the gospel of God to you, laboring night and day, so that we would not be a burden to any of you.

10 You are witnesses, and God also, how holy and justly and unblamable we behaved ourselves among you who believe,

11 As you know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father does his children,

12 That you would walk worthy of God, who has called you to his kingdom and glory.

13 For this cause we thank God without ceasing, because, when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe.

14 For you, brothers, became followers of the churches of God in Judea that are in Christ Jesus; for you have also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, even as they have from the Jews;

15 Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us. They do not please God, and are foes to all men,

16 Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles so that they might be saved. So they always fill up the measure of their sins; but the wrath of God has come upon them to the utmost.

17 But we, brothers, being taken from you for a short time, in person but not in heart, endeavor all the more and with great longing to see you.

18 Therefore we would have come to you, (even I, Paul) again and again; but Satan hindered us.

19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

20 For you are our glory and joy.
1 Thessalonians 3

1 Therefore when we could no longer endure it, we thought it best to be left alone in Athens,

2 And send Timothy, our brother and minister of God, and our fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and comfort you concerning your faith,

3 So that no man should be disturbed by my afflictions; for yourselves know that we are appointed to this.

4 For truly, when we were with you, we told you that we would suffer tribulation; even as it has now happened, as you know.

5 For this reason, when I could no longer endure it, I sent that I might know of your faith, lest by some means the tempter might have tempted you, and our labor would be in vain.

6 But now Timothy has come from you to us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and love, and that you have affectionate remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also desire to see you.

7 Therefore, brothers, we were comforted by your faith in all our affliction and distress;

8 For now we really live, if you stand fast in the Lord.

9 For what thanks can we render to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sakes before our God;

10 Praying exceedingly, night and day, that we might see your face, and perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

11 Now may our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you.

12 And the Lord make you increase and abound in love toward one another and toward all men, even as we do toward you;

13 So that he may establish your hearts unblamable in holiness before God, our Father, at the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ in his saints.
1 Thessalonians 4

1 Furthermore we beseech you, brothers, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as you have been instructed by us how you should walk to please God, do this more and more.

2 For you know what commands we gave you by the Lord Jesus.

3 For this is the will of God: your sanctification, that you should abstain from sexual immorality;

4 That every one of you should know how to possess [control] his own body in purity and honor,

5 Not in the passions of lusts, as the Gentiles do, who are ignorant of God.

6 So that no one would take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all these things, as we have forewarned you and testified.

7 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness.

8 He therefore who disregards this, does not disregard man, but God, who has given his holy Spirit to us.

9 But concerning brotherly love, you do not need me to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another.

10 And indeed you do it toward all the brothers who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, that you increase more and more,

11 And that you aspire to lead a quiet and peaceful life, and to attend to your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you,

12 So that you may walk honestly toward those who are outside, and that you may not need anything.

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning those who are asleep, so that you sorrow, even as others do who have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with him those who sleep in Jesus.

15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain till the coming of the Lord will not precede those who are asleep [in Jesus].

16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will ever be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5

1 Now of the times and the dates, brothers, you do not need me to write you.

2 For you know perfectly that "the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night" [unexpectedly].

3 For when they are saying, "Peace and safety;" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they will not escape.

4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness, that day should overtake you like a thief.

5 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day; we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do; but let us watch and be sober.

7 For those who sleep, sleep in the night; and those who are drunk, are drunk in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, so that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 

11 Therefore comfort and edify one another, even as you do.

12 And we beseech you, brothers, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you.

13 Esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

14 Now we exhort you, brothers, warn those who are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.

15 See that none of you repays evil for evil to any man; but always follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

19 Do not quench the Spirit.

20 Do not despise prophesying.

21 Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good.

22 Abstain from every form and appearance of evil.

23 And may the God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless to the coming at our Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Faithful is he who calls you, who will also do it.

25 Brethren, pray for us.

26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.

27 I charge you by the Lord that this letter be read to all the holy brothers.

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
2 Thessalonians 1

1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

 2 by Grace to youand peacefrom God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 3 We thank God always for you, brothers, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and your love toward each other overflows,

 4 So that we ourselves speak proudly of you to the churches of God because of your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure;

 5 Which is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you suffer.

 6 It it is a righteous thing with God to repay affliction to those who afflict you;

 7 And to you who are troubled, to give rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

 8 Taking vengeance in flaming fire on those who do not know God, and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ;

 9 Who will be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.

 10 When he comes, he is glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at and admired in all those who have believed

 11 Therefore we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power,

 12 So that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Thessalonians 2

1 Now we beg you, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him,

 
2 That you do not become easily shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter as if from us, saying that the day of Christ has come.

 
3 Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day will not come, until a falling away has come first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition; 1

 
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God [your heart], proclaiming himself to be God.

 
5 Do you not remember that when I was with you, I told you these things?

 
6 And now you know what restrains him so that he might be revealed in his time.

 
7 For the mystery of iniquity [lawlessness, sin] is already at work; only he who now restrains it allows it, until he is taken out of the way.

 
8 And then that wicked one [the man of sin within you] will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and destroy with the brightness of his coming.

 
9 Even him, whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 
10 And with all the deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth so that they might be saved.

 
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie;

 
12 So that all those might be damned who do not believe the truth, but have pleasure in unrighteousness.2

 
13 But we should always give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you for salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth,

 
14 To which he called you by our gospel, that you might obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 
15 Therefore, brothers, stand fast and hold the traditions that you have been taught, whether by word or letter.

 
16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who has loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

 
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.
2 Thessalonians 3

1 Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be glorified, even as it is with you,
 2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for all men do not have faith.
 3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and keep you from evil.
 4 And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command you.
 5 And may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ.
 6 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received from us.
 7 For yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you,
 8 Neither did we eat any man's bread without paying for it, but labored and toiled night and day, so that we might not be a burden to any of you,
 9 Not because we did not have the right, but to make ourselves an example for you to follow.
 10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: "If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat." 
 11 For we hear that there are some who are disorderly among you, not working at all, but are busybodies.
 12 Now such people we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness and eat their own food.
 13 But you, brothers, do not be weary in well doing.
 14 And if any man does not obey our word in this letter, note that man, and have no company with him, so that he may be ashamed.
 15 Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
 16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.
 17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is a sign in every letter; this is how I write.
 18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
1 Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be glorified, even as it is with you,

 
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for all men do not have faith.

 
3 But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and keep you from evil.

 
4 And we have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command you.

 
5 And may the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ.

 
6 Now we command you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received from us.

 
7 For yourselves know how you ought to follow us, for we were not disorderly among you,

 
8 Neither did we eat any man's bread without paying for it, but labored and toiled night and day, so that we might not be a burden to any of you,

 
9 Not because we did not have the right, but to make ourselves an example for you to follow.

 
10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: "If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat."

 
11 For we hear that there are some who are disorderly among you, not working at all, but are busybodies.

 
12 Now such people we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that they work with quietness and eat their own food.

 
13 But you, brothers, do not be weary in well doing.

 
14 And if any man does not obey our word in this letter, note that man, and have no company with him, so that he may be ashamed.

 
15 Yet do not count him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

 
16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

 
17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is a sign in every letter; this is how I write.

 
18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
