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