1 *aPaul, and aaSilvanus, and bTimotheus, unto the church of the cThessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: dGrace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 eWe give thanks to God always for you all, making fmention of you in our prayers; 3 Remembering gwithout ceasing hyour work of ifaith, and klabour of ilove, and lpatience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of mGod and our Father; 4 Knowing, brethren ||nbeloved, nyour election of God. 5 For our gospel came onot unto you in word only, but also oin power, and opin the Holy Ghost, and in qmuch assurance; as rye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. 6 And sye became followers of us, and of the Lord, thaving received the word in much affliction, uwwith joy of wthe Holy Ghost: 7 So that ye were xensamples to all that believe in yMacedonia and yAchaia. 8 For from you zsounded out the word of the Lord not only in yMacedonia and yAchaia, but also ain every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. 9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of bentering in we had unto you, and how cye turned to God dfrom idols to serve ethe living and ftrue God; 10 And gto wait for hhis Son ifrom heaven, kwhom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, lwhich delivered us from mthe wrath to come.
