1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
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.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
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.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
27 I chargec you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
