1 Thessalonians 2:11; 1 Thessalonians 3:2; 1 Thessalonians 3:7; 1 Thessalonians 4:1; 1 Thessalonians 4:10
As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you , as a father doth his children,
And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:
Therefore , brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:
Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
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;
