15 For this we say unto you xby the word of the Lord, that ywe which are alive and remain unto zthe coming of the Lord shall not aprevent qthem which are asleep. 16 For bthe Lord himself shall descend cfrom heaven with a shout, with the voice of dthe archangel, and with ethe trump of God: and fthe dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then gwe which are alive and remain shall be hcaught up together with them iin the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so kshall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore ||lcomfort one another with these words.

5 But of athe times and the seasons, brethren, bye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that cthe day of the Lord so cometh das a thief in the night. For when ethey shall say, Peace and safety; then fsudden gdestruction cometh upon them, as htravail upon a woman with child; and ithey shall not escape. But ye, brethren, jare not in darkness, that cthat day should overtake you das a thief. Ye are all kthe children of light, and the children of the day: lwe are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not msleep, as do others; but let us nwatch and obe sober. For they that msleep sleep in the night; and pthey that be drunken qare drunken rin the night. But let us, kwho are of the day, obe sober, sputting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not tappointed us uto wrath, but wto obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 xWho died for us, that, whether we nwake or msleep, we should live together with him. 11 Wherefore ||ycomfort yourselves together, and zedify one another, even as also ye do.
