1 Wherfore sence we coulde no lenger forbeare it pleased vs to remayne at Athens alone 1 So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by ourselves in Athens.
2 and sent Timotheus oure brother and minister of god and oure laboure felowe in the gospell of Christ to stablysshe you and to coforte you over youre fayth 2 We sent Timothy, who is our brother and God's fellow worker in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith,
3 yt no ma shulde be moved in these affliccios. For ye youre selves knowe that we are even apoynted therevnto. 3 so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. You know quite well that we were destined for them.
4 For verely when I was with you I tolde you before that we shulde suffre tribulacion even as it came to passe and as ye knowe. 4 In fact, when we were with you, we kept telling you that we would be persecuted. And it turned out that way, as you well know.
5 For this cause when I coulde no lenger forbeare I sent that I myght have knowledge of youre fayth lest haply the tempter had tempted you and that oure laboure had bene bestowed in vayne. 5 For this reason, when I could stand it no longer, I sent to find out about your faith. I was afraid that in some way the tempter might have tempted you and our efforts might have been useless.
6 But now lately whe Timotheus came fro you vnto vs and declared to vs youre fayth and youre love and how that ye have good remembraunce of vs all wayes desyringe to se vs as we desyre to se you. 6 But Timothy has just now come to us from you and has brought good news about your faith and love. He has told us that you always have pleasant memories of us and that you long to see us, just as we also long to see you.
7 Therfore brethre we had consolacion in you in all oure adversite and necessite through youre fayth. 7 Therefore, brothers, in all our distress and persecution we were encouraged about you because of your faith.
8 For now are we alyve yf ye stonde stedfast in the lorde. 8 For now we really live, since you are standing firm in the Lord.
9 For what thankes can we recompence to god agayne for you over all the ioye that we ioye for youre sakes before oure god 9 How can we thank God enough for you in return for all the joy we have in the presence of our God because of you?
10 whyle we nyght and daye praye excedingly that we myght se you presently and myght fulfill that wich is lackynge in youre fayth. 10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith.
11 God him silfe oure father and oure lorde Iesus Christ gyde oure iorney vnto you: 11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you.
12 and the lorde increace you and make you flowe ouer in love one towarde another and towarde all men even as we do towarde you 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you.
13 to make youre hertes stable and vnblameable in holynes before God oure father at the commynge of oure Lorde Iesus Christ with all his sainctes. 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.
