1THESS 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1THESS 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1THESS 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1THESS 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1THESS 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
1THESS 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.
1THESS 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
1THESS 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1THESS 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1THESS 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
1THESS 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
1THESS 5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
1THESS 5:13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. [And] be at peace among yourselves.
1THESS 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all [men].
1THESS 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any [man]; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all [men].
1THESS 5:16 Rejoice evermore.
1THESS 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
1THESS 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1THESS 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.
1THESS 5:20 Despise not prophesyings.
1THESS 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
1THESS 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1THESS 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1THESS 5:24 Faithful [is] he that calleth you, who also will do [it].
1THESS 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.
1THESS 5:26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
1THESS 5:27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
1THESS 5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you. Amen. <[The first [epistle] to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.]>
