Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:1 - As to the rest, then, brethren, we request you, and call upon you in the Lord Jesus, as ye did receive from us how it behoveth you to walk and to please God, that ye may abound the more,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:2 - for ye have known what commands we gave you through the Lord Jesus,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:3 - for this is the will of God -- your sanctification; that ye abstain from the whoredom,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:4 - that each of you know his own vessel to possess in sanctification and honour,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:5 - not in the affection of desire, as also the nations that were not knowing God,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:6 - that no one go beyond and defraud in the matter his brother, because an avenger is the Lord of all these, as also we spake before to you and testified,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:7 - for God did not call us on uncleanness, but in sanctification;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:8 - he, therefore, who is despising -- doth not despise man, but God, who also did give His Holy Spirit to us.

Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:12 - that ye may walk becomingly unto those without, and may have lack of nothing.

Those Who Died in Christ

Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:13 - And I do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, that ye may not sorrow, as also the rest who have not hope,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:14 - for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, so also God those asleep through Jesus he will bring with him,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:15 - for this to you we say in the word of the Lord, that we who are living -- who do remain over to the presence of the Lord -- may not precede those asleep,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:16 - because the Lord himself, in a shout, in the voice of a chief-messenger, and in the trump of God, shall come down from heaven, and the dead in Christ shall rise first,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:17 - then we who are living, who are remaining over, together with them shall be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in air, and so always with the Lord we shall be;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 4:18 - so, then, comfort ye one another in these words.
