1 Thessalonians 1]

     1:1 Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the congregation* of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: grace to youĎ and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

     1:2 We are always giving-thanks to God concerning all of youĎ, making* a remembrance of youĎ in our prayers; 1:3 constantly remembering yourĎ work of the faith, and labor of love*, and of the endurance of the hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father, 1:4 knowing beloved brethren yourĎ choice by God. 1:5 YouĎknow because our good-news did not happened to youĎ in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much full assurance; just-as youĎ know what manner of men we became among youĎ, because of youĎ. 1:6 And youĎ became imitators of us and of the Lord, having accepted the word in much affliction with joy of the Holy Spirit; 1:7 so-that youĎ became examples to all who believe in Macedonia and in Achaia. 1:8 For*the word of the Lord has echoed forth from youĎ, not only in Macedonia and in Achaia, but also in every place yourĎ faith toward God has gone forth; so-that we do not need to say anything. 1:9For* they themselves are reporting concerning us, what sort of entrance we had toward youĎ, and how youĎ turned from idols to God, to serve* a living and true God, 1:10 and to await his Son Jesus from the heavens, whom he raised up from the dead; who rescues us from the coming wrath.
