From: Sha'ul, Sila and Timothy To: The Messianic Community of the Thessalonians, united with God our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah:
Grace to you and shalom from God the Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
We have to keep thanking God for you always, brothers, as is appropriate; because your trust continues to grow greater, and the love you each have for one another continues to increase.
Therefore, we boast about you in the congregations of God because of your perseverance and trust in all the persecutions and troubles you are going through.
This is clear evidence that God's judgment is just; and as a result, you will be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God for which you are suffering.
For it is justice for God to pay back trouble to those who are troubling you,
