1 Thessalonians 5


The Day of the Lord

1 Thessalonians 5:1
  Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you.
1 Thessalonians 5:2
  For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night.
1 Thessalonians 5:3
  While they are saying, "Peace and safety!" then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape.
1 Thessalonians 5:4
  But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief;
1 Thessalonians 5:5
  for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness;
1 Thessalonians 5:6
  so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.
1 Thessalonians 5:7
  For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night.
1 Thessalonians 5:8
  But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation.
1 Thessalonians 5:9
  For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 5:10
  who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.
1 Thessalonians 5:11
  Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

Christian Conduct

1 Thessalonians 5:12
  But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction,
1 Thessalonians 5:13
  and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another.
1 Thessalonians 5:14
  We urge you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
  See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people.
1 Thessalonians 5:16
  Rejoice always;
1 Thessalonians 5:17
  pray without ceasing;
1 Thessalonians 5:18
  in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:19
  Do not quench the Spirit;
1 Thessalonians 5:20
  do not despise prophetic utterances.
1 Thessalonians 5:21
  But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;
1 Thessalonians 5:22
  abstain from every form of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
  Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:24
  Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
1 Thessalonians 5:25
  Brethren, pray for us.
1 Thessalonians 5:26
  Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.
1 Thessalonians 5:27
  I adjure you by the Lord to have this letter read to all the brethren.
1 Thessalonians 5:28
  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
