For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad ; so that we need not to speak any thing.
For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
For yourselves, brethren, know our entrance in unto you, that it was not in vain:
For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:
For neither at any time used we flattering words , as ye know , nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness:
For ye remember , brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.
For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing ? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
For ye are our glory and joy.
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto .
For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation ; even as it came to pass , and ye know .
For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;
For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.
And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again , even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep .
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
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 .
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
In every thing give thanks : for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
