1 Thessalonians 1:9; 1 Thessalonians 2:1; 1 Thessalonians 2:14; 1 Thessalonians 3:3; 1 Thessalonians 3:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23
For they themselves report about us what kind of a reception we had with you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God,
For you yourselves know, brethren, that our coming to you was not in vain,
For you, brethren, became imitators of the churches of God in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, for you also endured the same sufferings at the hands of your own countrymen, even as they did from the Jews,
so that no one would be disturbed by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that we have been destined for this.
Now may our God and Father Himself and Jesus our Lord direct our way to you;
Now as to the love of the brethren, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another;
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
