But of the timesG5550 and the seasons,G2540 brothers,G80 you haveG2192 noG3756 needG5532 that I writeG1125 to you.
For yourselvesG846 knowG1492 perfectlyG199 that the dayG2250 of the LordG2962 soG3779 comesG2064 as a thiefG2812 in the night.G3571
For whenG3752 they shall say,G3004 PeaceG1515 and safety;G803 thenG5119 suddenG160 destructionG3639 comesG2186 on them, as travailG5604 on a woman with child;G1722 G106 G2192 and they shall not G1628escape.
But you, brothers,G80 are not in darkness,G4655 that that dayG2250 should overtakeG2638 you as a thief.G2812
You are allG3956 the childrenG5207 of light,G5457 and the childrenG5207 of the day:G2250 we are not of the night,G3571 norG3761 of darkness.G4655
ThereforeG686 G3767 let us not sleep,G2518 as do others;G3062 but let us watchG1127 and be sober.G3525
For they that sleepG2518 sleepG2518 in the night;G3571 and they that be drunkenG3184 are drunkenG3184 in the night.G3571
But let us, who are of the day,G2250 be sober,G3525 puttingG1746 onG1746 the breastplateG2382 of faithG4102 and love;G26 and for an helmet,G4030 the hopeG1680 of salvation.G4991
For GodG2316 has not appointedG5087 us to wrath,G3709 but to obtainG4047 salvationG4991 by our LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ,G5547
WhoG3588 diedG599 for us, that, whetherG1535 we wakeG1127 orG1535 sleep,G2518 we should liveG2198 togetherG260 with him.
WhyG1352 comfortG3870 yourselvesG240 together,G240 and edifyG3618 oneG1520 another,G1520 evenG2531 as alsoG2532 you do.G4160
And we beseechG2065 you, brothers,G80 to knowG1492 them whichG3588 laborG2872 amongG1722 you, and are overG4291 you in the Lord,G2962 and admonishG3560 you;
And to esteemG2233 them veryG5228 highlyG1537 G4053 in loveG26 for their work'sG2041 sake. And be atG1722 peaceG1518 amongG1722 yourselves.G1438
NowG1161 we exhortG3870 you, brothers,G80 warnG3560 them that are unruly,G813 comfortG3888 the feebleminded,G3642 supportG472 the weak,G772 be patientG3114 towardG4314 allG3956 men.
SeeG3708 that noneG3361 G5100 renderG591 evilG2556 for evilG2556 to anyG5100 man; but everG3842 followG1377 that whichG3588 is good,G18 bothG2532 amongG1519 yourselves,G1438 and to allG3956 men.
RejoiceG5463 ever more.G3842
PrayG4336 withoutG89 ceasing.G89
In everyG3956 thing give thanks:G2168 for thisG5124 is the willG2307 of GodG2316 in ChristG5547 JesusG2424 concerningG1519 you.
QuenchG4570 not the Spirit.G4151
DespiseG1848 not prophesyings.G4394
ProveG1381 allG3956 things; holdG2722 fastG2722 that whichG3588 is good.G2570
AbstainG567 from allG3956 appearanceG1491 of evil.G4190
And the veryG846 GodG2316 of peaceG1515 sanctifyG37 you wholly;G3651 and I pray God yourG3588 wholeG3648 spiritG4151 and soulG5590 and bodyG4983 be preservedG5083 blamelessG274 to the comingG3952 of our LordG2962 JesusG2424 Christ.G5547
FaithfulG4103 is he that callsG2564 you, whoG3739 alsoG2532 will doG4160 it.
Brothers,G80 prayG4336 for us.
GreetG782 allG3956 the brothersG80 with an holyG40 kiss.G5370
I chargeG3726 you by the LordG2962 that thisG3588 letterG1992 be readG314 to allG3956 the holyG40 brothers.G80
The graceG5485 of our LordG2962 JesusG2424 ChristG5547 be with you. Amen.G281 The first epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.
