1 For the rest, then, brethren, we beg you and exhort you in [the] Lord Jesus, even as ye have received from us how ye ought to walk and please God, even as ye also do walk, that ye would abound still more.

References for 1 Thessalonians 4:1

    • a 4:1 - I do not say 'to please,' because then pleasing God would be a distinct object. Here it is rather 'to walk so as to please.' The point is, the 'how,' that is, the manner of doing it, not that it ought to be an object, however true that may be.
