1 Thessalonians 1

Greetings to the Thessalonians

Paul, Silvanus,
That is, Silas
and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God [the] Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ: Grace and peace to you.
BYZ and TR include from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
We always thank God for all of you, making mention [of you] in our prayers [and] continually recalling before our God and Father your work of faith, [your] labor of love, and [your] enduring hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. Brothers who are beloved by God, we know [that] He has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power, in [the] Holy Spirit, and with great conviction— just as you know we lived among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord when you welcomed the message with [the] joy of [the] Holy Spirit, in [spite of your] great suffering. As a result, you have become an example to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. For not only {did} the message of the Lord ring out from you to Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone out to every place, so that we have no need to say anything [more] . For they themselves report what kind of welcome you gave us, and how you turned away from idols to serve [the] living and true God 10  and to await His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead— Jesus our deliverer from the coming wrath.
