1 Thessalonians 1


Paul's Greetings to the Thessalonians

Paul, and Silas, and Timothy, to the assembly of Thessalonians, in God the father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ. Favor to you, and peace from God our father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God at all times concerning all of you, [2mention 3of you 1making] in our prayers; continually remembering your work of the belief, and the toil of the love, and the endurance of the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ, before [2God 3and 4father 1our]. Knowing brethren, O ones being loved by God, of your selection, that our good news did not take place in you in word only, but also in power, and in [2spirit 1holy], and in [2full assurance 1much]; as you know what we became among you for you. And you [2imitators 3of us 1became], and of the Lord, having received the word in [2affliction 1much], with joy [2spirit 1of holy], so that you became models to all the ones believing in Macedonia and Achaia. [2from 3you 1For 8has resounded 4the 5word 6of the 7Lord], not only in Macedonia but in Achaia. But also in every place the belief of yours, the one towards God, has gone forth, so as [3no 4need 1for us 2to have] to say anything. For they themselves [2concerning 3us 1report] as to like what introduction we had towards you, and how you turned to God from the idols, to serve [4God 1a living 2and 3true], 10 and to await his son from out of the heavens, whom he raised from the dead -- Jesus, the one rescuing us from the [2wrath 1coming].
