1 Thessalonians 2:4; 1 Thessalonians 2:6-7; 1 Thessalonians 2:10-11; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:4; 1 Thessalonians 5:6
But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak ; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.
Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome , as the apostles of Christ.
But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe :
As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you , as a father doth his children,
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Therefore let us not sleep , as do others; but let us watch and be sober .
