Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:1 - And concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need of my writing to you,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:2 - for yourselves have known thoroughly that the day of the Lord as a thief in the night doth so come,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:3 - for when they may say, Peace and surety, then sudden destruction doth stand by them, as the travail doth her who is with child, and they shall not escape;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:4 - and ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day may catch you as a thief;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:5 - all ye are sons of light, and sons of day; we are not of night, nor of darkness,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:6 - so, then, we may not sleep as also the others, but watch and be sober,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:7 - for those sleeping, by night do sleep, and those making themselves drunk, by night are drunken,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:8 - and we, being of the day -- let us be sober, putting on a breastplate of faith and love, and an helmet -- a hope of salvation,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:9 - because God did not appoint us to anger, but to the acquiring of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:10 - who did die for us, that whether we wake -- whether we sleep -- together with him we may live;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:11 - wherefore, comfort ye one another, and build ye up, one the one, as also ye do.

Christian Conduct

Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:12 - And we ask you, brethren, to know those labouring among you, and leading you in the Lord, and admonishing you,
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:13 - and to esteem them very abundantly in love, because of their work; be at peace among yourselves;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:14 - and we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the infirm, be patient unto all;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:15 - see no one evil for evil may render to any one, but always that which is good pursue ye, both to one another and to all;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:16 - always rejoice ye;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:17 - continually pray ye;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:18 - in every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus in regard to you.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:19 - The Spirit quench not;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:20 - prophesyings despise not;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:21 - all things prove; that which is good hold fast;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:22 - from all appearance of evil abstain ye;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:23 - and the God of the peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your whole spirit, and soul, and body, be preserved unblameably in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:24 - stedfast is He who is calling you, who also will do it.
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:25 - Brethren, pray for us;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:26 - salute all the brethren in an holy kiss;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:27 - I charge you by the Lord, that the letter be read to all the holy brethren;
Unchecked Copy Box1Th 5:28 - the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you! Amen.
