Greetings to the Thessalonians
(1 Thessalonians 1:1–10)

1Paul and Siluanus and Timotheus, vnto the Church of the Thessalonians in God our father, and the Lord Iesus Christe: 2Grace vnto you and peace from God our father, & the Lorde Iesus Christe.

3We are bound to thanke God alwayes for you brethren, as it is meete, because that your fayth groweth exceedyngly, and the loue of euery one of you toward another aboundeth: 4So that we our selues reioyce in you in the Churches of God, ouer your pacience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye suffer,

Christ’s Coming

5Which is a token of the ryghteous iudgment of God, that ye may be counted woorthy of the kyngdome of God, for which ye also suffer. 6For it is a ryghteous thing with God, to recompence tribulation to them that trouble you: 7And to you whiche are troubled, reste with vs, in the reuelation of the Lorde Iesus from heauen, with the Angels of his power, 8In flamyng fire, rendryng vengeance vnto them that knowe not God, and that obey not the Gospell of our Lorde Iesus Christe. 9Which shalbe punisshed with euerlastyng dampnation, from the presence of the Lorde, & fro the glorie of his power: 10When he shall come to be glorified in his saintes, and to be made marueylous in all them that beleue (because our testimonie toward you was beleued) in that day. 11Wherfore also we praye alwayes for you, that our God woulde make you worthy of the callyng, & fulfyll all good pleasure of goodnesse in the worke of fayth in power: 12That the name of our Lorde Iesus Christe may be glorified in you, and ye in hym, accordyng to the grace of our God, and the Lorde Iesus Christe.
