1 Thessalonians 4:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:12-15; 1 Thessalonians 5:7; 1 Thessalonians 5:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:27
for indeed you do practice it toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, to excel still more,
so that you will behave properly toward outsiders and not be in any need.
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
For this we say to you by the word of the Lord , that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord , will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night.
But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction,
I adjure you by the Lord to have this letter read to all the brethren.
