Greetings to the Thessalonians
(2 Thessalonians 1:1–4)

1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to you and peace.

2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention in our prayers; 3incessantly remembering your work of faith and labor of love and patience of hope of our Lord Jesus Christ, before God even our Father; 4knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election, 5because our gospel came not unto you in word only, but in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as you know what sort we were among you for your sakes. 6And you became imitators of us, and the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation, with the joy of the Holy Ghost; 7so that you are an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. 8For from you the word of the Lord echoed out, not only in Macedonia and in Achaia, but in every place your faith which is towards God has gone forth; so that we have no need to say any thing: 9for they proclaim concerning what kind of reception we had unto you; and how you turned to God from the idols, to serve the true and the living God, 10and to await his Son out of the heavens, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus the one delivering us from the wrath to come.
