Paul's Ministry

(cf. Act 17:1–9 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:1 - For you yourselves know, brothers, our visit to you wasn't in vain,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:2 - but having suffered before and been shamefully treated, as you know, at Philippi, we grew bold in our God to tell you the Good News of God in much conflict.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:3 - For our exhortation is not of error, nor of uncleanness, nor in deception.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:4 - But even as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the Good News, so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, who tests our hearts.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:5 - For neither were we at any time found using words of flattery, as you know, nor a cloak of covetousness (God is witness),
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:6 - nor seeking glory from men (neither from you nor from others), when we might have claimed authority as apostles of Messiah.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:7 - But we were gentle among of you, as when a nurse cherishes her own children.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:8 - Even so, affectionately longing for you, we were well pleased to impart to you, not the Good News of God only, but also our own souls, because you had become very dear to us.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:9 - For you remember, brothers, our labor and travail; for working night and day, that we might not burden any of you, we preached to you the Good News of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:10 - You are witnesses with God, how holy, righteously, and blamelessly we behaved ourselves toward you who believe.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:11 - As you know how we exhorted, comforted, and implored every one of you, as a father does his own children,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:12 - to the end that you should walk worthily of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:13 - For this cause we also thank God without ceasing, that, when you received from us the word of the message of God, you accepted it not as the word of men, but, as it is in truth, the word of God, which also works in you who believe.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:14 - For you, brothers, became imitators of the assemblies of God which are in Yehudah in Messiah Yeshua; for you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, even as they did from the Yehudim;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:15 - who killed both the Lord Yeshua and their own prophets, and drove us out, and didn't please God, and are contrary to all men;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:16 - forbidding us to speak to the Goyim that they may be saved; to fill up their sins always. But wrath has come on them to the uttermost.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:17 - But we, brothers, being bereaved of you for a short season, in presence, not in heart, tried even harder to see your face with great desire,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:18 - because we wanted to come to you -- indeed, I, Sha'ul, once and again -- but Hasatan hindered us.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:19 - For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Isn't it even you, before our Lord Yeshua at his coming?
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 2:20 - For you are our glory and our joy.
