1 Thessalonians 2:12-20

CSB 12 we encouraged, comforted, and implored each one of you to walk worthy of God, who calls you into His own kingdom and glory. NIV 12 encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory. CSB 13 Also, this is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the message about God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message, but as it truly is, the message of God, which also works effectively in you believers. NIV 13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe. CSB 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of God's churches in Christ Jesus that are in Judea, since you have also suffered the same things from people of your own country, just as they did from the Jews. NIV 14 For you, brothers, became imitators of God's churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own countrymen the same things those churches suffered from the Jews, CSB 15 They killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and persecuted us; they displease God, and are hostile to everyone, NIV 15 who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to all men CSB 16 hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. As a result, they are always adding to the number of their sins, and wrath has overtaken them completely. NIV 16 in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last. CSB 17 But as for us, brothers, after we were forced to leave you for a short time (in person, not in heart), we greatly desired and made every effort to return and see you face to face. NIV 17 But, brothers, when we were torn away from you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you. CSB 18 So we wanted to come to you-even I, Paul, time and again-but Satan hindered us. NIV 18 For we wanted to come to you--certainly I, Paul, did, again and again--but Satan stopped us. CSB 19 For who is our hope, or joy, or crown of boasting in the presence of our Lord Jesus at His coming? Is it not you? NIV 19 For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? CSB 20 For you are our glory and joy! NIV 20 Indeed, you are our glory and joy.
