Chapter 5

Thessalonians-1 5:1

But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

Thessalonians-1 5:2

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

Thessalonians-1 5:3

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Thessalonians-1 5:4

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Thessalonians-1 5:5

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Thessalonians-1 5:6

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

Thessalonians-1 5:7

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

Thessalonians-1 5:8

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

Thessalonians-1 5:9

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

Thessalonians-1 5:10

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

Thessalonians-1 5:11

Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

Thessalonians-1 5:12

And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

Thessalonians-1 5:13

And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. [And] be at peace among yourselves.

Thessalonians-1 5:14

Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men].

Thessalonians-1 5:15

See that none render evil for evil unto any [man]; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all [men].

Thessalonians-1 5:16

Rejoice evermore.

Thessalonians-1 5:17

Pray without ceasing.

Thessalonians-1 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Thessalonians-1 5:19

Quench not the Spirit.

Thessalonians-1 5:20

Despise not prophesyings.

Thessalonians-1 5:21

Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

Thessalonians-1 5:22

Abstain from all appearance of evil.

Thessalonians-1 5:23

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thessalonians-1 5:24

Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].

Thessalonians-1 5:25

Brethren, pray for us.

Thessalonians-1 5:26

Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.

Thessalonians-1 5:27

I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.

Thessalonians-1 5:28

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen.
