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

1Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ; 2grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

3We ought always to give thanks to God on your account, my brethren, as it is fit; because your faith increaseth greatly, and the love of every one of you towards each other aboundeth: 4so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God, for your patience and faith under all your persecutions and afflictions which ye endure.

Christ’s Coming

5Which are a demonstration of the just judgement of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer: 6seeing it is a righteous thing with God to render affliction to those that afflict you; 7and to you, who are in trouble, rest with us, at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven, 8with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, taking vengeance on those who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9who shall be punished with everlasting destruction, by the presence of the Lord and by his glorious power: 10in that day, when He shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe; because our testimony among you was believed. 11Wherefore we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: 12that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.
