1st Thess. Chapter 5

1st Thess. 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that I write to you.

1st Thess. 5:2 For yourselves know fully that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

1st Thess. 5:3 For when they will say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes on them, as pains on a woman with child; and they will not escape.

1st Thess. 5:4 But you, brothers, are not in darkness, so that day should be overtaking you as a thief.

1st Thess. 5:5 You are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

1st Thess. 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

1st Thess. 5:7 For they that sleep, are sleeping in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

1st Thess. 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.

1st Thess. 5:9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

1st Thess. 5:10 who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.

1st Thess. 5:11 Therefore comfort yourselves together, and build up one another, just as also you do.

1st Thess. 5:12 For we urge you, brothers, to know those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

1st Thess. 5:13 and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

1st Thess. 5:14 Now we exhort you, brothers, warn them that are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, support the weak and be patient toward all men.

1st Thess. 5:15 See that no one gives back evil for evil to anyone; but pursue that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.

1st Thess. 5:16 Rejoice at all times.

1st Thess. 5:17 Pray without intermission.

1st Thess. 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

1st Thess. 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.

1st Thess. 5:20 Despise not prophesying.

1st Thess. 5:21 Test all things; hold fast that which is good.

1st Thess. 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

1st Thess. 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you completely; and may all your parts, spirit and soul and body be kept faultless in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1st Thess. 5:24 Faithful is He that is calling you, who also will be doing it.

1st Thess. 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.

1st Thess. 5:26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss as a token of friendship.

1st Thess. 5:27 I charge you by the Lord that this letter be read to all the holy brothers.

1st Thess. 5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
