1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, to the church of Thessalonians, in God our Father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Paul, Silas and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2 grace to you and peace of God, our Father, and of the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 We owe to do thankings evermore to God for you, brethren, so as it is worthy, for your faith over-waxeth, and the charity of each of you to other aboundeth. [+We owe to do thankings ever to God for you, brethren, so as it is worthy, for your faith ever-waxeth, and the charity of each of you together aboundeth.] 3 We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.
4 So that we us selves glory in you [So that we ourselves glory in you] in the churches of God, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations. Which ye sustain 4 Therefore, among God's churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.
5 into the ensample [into the example] of the just doom of God, that ye be had worthy in the kingdom of God, for which ye suffer. 5 All this is evidence that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.
6 If nevertheless it is just before God [If nevertheless it is just at God] to requite tribulation to them that trouble you, 6 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you
7 and to you that be troubled, rest with us in the showing of the Lord Jesus from heaven, with angels of his virtue, 7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.
8 in the flame of fire, that shall give vengeance to them that know not God [in the flame of fire, giving vengeance to them that know not God], and that obey not to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9 Which shall suffer everlasting pains, in perishing from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his virtue, 9 They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power
10 when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be made wonderful in all men that believed, for our witnessing is believed on you, in that day. 10 on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.
11 In which thing also we pray evermore for you, that our God make you worthy to his calling, and fill all the will of his goodness [and fulfill all the will of his goodness], and the work of faith in virtue; 11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ be clarified in you, and ye in him, by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [after the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ]. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
