God ""to speak unto you the gospel of God
" with much contention.

3 '"For our exhortation was not of deceit,
nor of uncleanness, nor in guile ;

4 But as ?we were allowed of God 'Ho be
put in trust with the gospel, even so we
speak ; " not as pleasing men, but God,
'' which trieth our hearts.

5 For 'neither at any time used we flat-
tering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of
covetousn.ess ; "• God is witness :

6 "Nor of men sought we glory, neither
of you, nor yet of others, when "we mig'ht
have II been p burdensome, las the apostles
of Christ.

7 But ^ we were gentle among you, even
as a nurse cherisheth her children :

8 So being affectionately desirous of you,
we were willing Ho have imparted unto you,
not the gospel of God only, but also * our own
souls, because ye were dear unto us.

9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour
and travail : for "labouring night and day,
^because we would not be chargeable unto
any of you, we preached unto you the gospel
of God.

10 y Ye are witnesses, and God also, ^how
holily, and justly, and unblamably we be-
haved ourselves among you that believe :

11 As ye know how we exhorted, and com-
forted, and charged every one of you, as a
father doth his children,

12 ''That ye would walk worthy of God,
''who hath called you unto his kingdom and
glory.

13 For this cause also thank we God
■= without ceasing, because, when ye received
the word of God which ye heard of us,
ye received it ^ not as the word of men, but
(as it is in truth) the word of God, which
effectually worketh also in you that believe.

14 For ye, brethren, became followers ''of
the churches of God which in Judea are in
Christ Jesus : for ^ ye also have suffered like
things of your own countrymen, e even as they
have of the Jews :

15 "Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and
'their own prophets, and have || persecuted
us; and they please not God, ''and are con.
trary to all men :

16 'Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles

PauVs care for the Thessalonians.

that they* might be saved, " to fill up their
sins always : ° for the wrath is come upon
them to the uttermost.

17 But we, brethren, being taken from
you for a short time ° in presence,, not in
lieart, endeavoured the more abundantly Pto
gee your face with great desire.

18 Wherefore we would have come unto^
you, even I Paul, once and again ; but i Satan
hindered us.

19 For "^whatiV our hope, orjoy, or 'crown
of II rejoicing? Are not even ye in the pre-
sence of our Lord Jesus Christ *at his
coming ?

20 For ye are our glory and joy.

CHAP. III.

1 Saint Paul testifieth his great love to the ThessaloniaJis,
partly by sending Timothy unto them to strengthen
• and, comfort them : partly by rejoicing in their well
doing : 10 and partly by praying for them, and desir-
ing a safe coming unto them. *

WHEREFORE, -when we could no
longer forbear, '' we thought it good
to be left at Athens alone ;

2 And sent *= Tiraotheus, our brother, and
minister of God, and our fellow-labourer in
the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to
comfort you concerning your faith :

3 ^ That no man should be moved by these
afflictions : for yourselves know that •= we are
appointed thereunto.

4 '"For verily, when we were with you, we
told you before that we should suffer tribula-
tion ; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

5 For this cause, s when I could no longer
forbear, I sent to know your faith, ^ lest by
some means the tempter have tempted you,
and ' our labour be in vain.

6 ''But now, when Timotheus came from
you unto us, and brought us good tidings of
your faith and charity, and that ye have good
remembrance of us always, desiring greatly
to see us, ^ as we also to see you :

7 Therefore, brethreUj^we were comforted
over you in all our affliction and distress by
your faith :

8 For now we live, if ye " stand fast in the
Lord.

9 "For what thanks can we render to God
again for you, for all the joy wherewith we
joy for your sakes before our God ;

10 p Night and day ^ praying exceedingly
'that we might see your face, ' and might
perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

11 Now God himself and our Father, and
our Lord Jesus Christ, || * direct our way
unto you.

12 And the Lord " make you to increase
and abound in love ''one toward another, and
toward all men, even as we do toward you :

ITe exhorteth them to godliness, ^c.

13 To the end he may ^ stablish your
hearts unblamable in holiness before God,
even our Father, at the coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ^ with all his saints.

CHAP. IV.

I He exhorteth them to go on forward in all manner oj
godliness, 6 to live holily and justly, 9 to love one an-
other, 1 1 and quietly to follow their own business :
13 and last of all to sorrow moderately for the dead.
17 And unto this last exhortation is annexed a brief
description of the resurrection, and second coming of
Christ to judgment.

FURTHERMORE then we || beseech
you, brethren, and || exhort you by the
Lord Jesus, '^that as ye have received of us
^ how ye ought to walk "and to please God,
so ye would abound more and more.

2 For ye know what commandments we
gave you by the Lord Jesus.

3 For this is ^ the will of God, even « your
sanctification, •" that ye should abstain from
fornication :

4 s That every one of you should know
how to possess his vesset in sanctification
and honour ;

5 ''Not in the lust of concupiscence, ' even
as the Gentiles ^ which know not God :

6 'That no man go beyond and || defraud
his brother || in any matter : because that the
Lord "IS the avenger of all such, as we also
have forewarned you and testified.

7 For God hath not called us unto un-
cleanness, "but unto holiness.

8 °He therefore that || despiseth, despiseth
not man, but God Pwho hath also given unto
HS his Holy Spirit.

9 But as touching brotherly love lye need
not that I write unto yOu : for 'ye yourselves
are taught of God 'to love one another.

10 ' And indeed ye do it toward all the
brethren which are in all Macedonia : but
we beseech you, brethren, " that ye increase
more and more ;

11 And that ye study to be quiet, and '^ to
do your own business, and y to work with
your own hands, as we commanded you ;

12 '^That ye may walk honestly toward
them that are without, and that ye may have
lack II of nothing.

13 But I would not have you to be igno-
rant, brethren, concerning them which are
asleep, that ye sorrow not, "■ even as others
'' which have no hope.

14 For " if we believe that Jesus died and
rose again, even so ■' them also which sleep
in Jesus will God bring with him.

15 For this we say unto you «by the word
of the Lord, that *'we which are alive and
remain unto the coming of the Lord shall
not prevent them which are asleep.

Christ's coming to judgment described. II. THESSALONIANS.



Paul giveth divers precepts.



16 For e the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout, with the voice of
the archangel, and with ''the trump of God:
'and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17 '' Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them 'in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air : and
so "^ shall we ever be with the Lord.

18 " Wherefore, |I comfort one another
with these words.

CHAP. V.

1 He proceedeth in the former description of Christ's
com,i7ig to judgment, 16 and giveth dipers precepts,
23 and so concludeth the epistle.

T)UT of "the times and the seasons, bre



thren, •> ye have no need that I write
unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly, that ''the
day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the
night.

3 For when they shall say. Peace and safe-
ty ; then ^ sudden destruction cometh upon
them, ^ as travail upon a woman with child;
and they shall not escape.

4 '"Bit ye, brethren, are not in darkness,
that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all ?the children of light, and
the children of the day : we are not of the
night, nor of darkness.

6 "^ Therefore let us not sleep, as (Zo others;
but ' let us watch and be sober.

7 For ''they that sleep, sleep in the night;
and they that be drunken, ' are drunken in
the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
■"putting on the breast-plate of faith and
love ; and for an helmet, the hope of sal-
vation.

9 For " God hath not appointed us to
wTath, ° but to obtain salvation by our Lord
Jesus Christ,

10 PWho died for us, that, whether we
wake or sleep, we should live together with
him.

let, until he be taken out of the way.

8 And then shall that Wicked be re-
vealed, 'whom the Lord shall consume "with
the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy
" with the brightness of his coming :

9 Even him, whose coming is " after the
working of Satan, with all power, and p signs,
and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of un-
righteousness in ^them that perish ; because
they received not the love of the truth,
that they might be saved.

11 And '■for this cause God shall send
them strong delusion, Hhat they should be-
lieve a lie :

12 That they all might be damned who
believed not the truth, but 'had pleasure
in unrighteousness.

13 But " we are bound to give thanks
always to God for you, brethren beloved of
the Lord, because God ^ hath yfrom the be-
ginning chosen you to salvation, ^ through
sanctification of the- Spirit, and belief of the
truth :

14 Whereunto he called you by our gos-
pel, to * the obtaining of the glory of our
Lord Jesus Christ.

15 Therefore, brethren, *• stand fast, and
hold "the traditions which ye have been
taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16 "^ Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself,
and God, even our Father, * which hath
loved us, and hath given us everlasting con-
solation and f good hope through grace,

17 Comfort your hearts, ^ and stablish
you in every good word and work.

CHAP. m.

1 He craveth their prayers for himself, 3 testifieth what
confidence he hath in them, 5 mdketh request to God
in their behalf, 6 giveth them divers precepts, especially
to shun idleness, and ill company, 16 and last of all
concludeth with prayer and salutation.

FINALLY, brethren, ''pray for us, that
the word of the Lord t™Eiy have free
course, and be glorified, even as it is with you ;

2 And ''that we may be delivered from
t unreasonable and tvicked men : = for all
men have not faith.

3 But "^the Lord is faithful, who shall
stablish you, and ^ keep you from evil.

4 And ^we have confidence in the Lord
touching you, that ye both do and will do
the things which we command you.

5 And s the Lord direct your hearts into
the love of God, and || into the patient
waiting for Christ.

6 Now we command you, brethren, in
the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, ■> that
ye withdraw yourselves ' from every brother

that walketh ■'disorderly, and not after ' the
tradition which he received of us.

7 For yourselves know "how ye ought to
follow us : for " we behaved not ourselves
disorderly among you ;

8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for
nought ; but ° wrought with labour and tra-
vail night and day, that we might not be
chargeable to any of you :

9 P Not because we have not power, but
to make i ourselves an ensample unto you
to follow us.

10 For even when we were with you,
this we commanded you, "^that if any would
not work, neither should he eat.

11 For we hear that there are some ° which
walk among you disorderly, 'working not at
all, but are busybodies.

12 "Now them that are such we com-
mand and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ,
