Book 52 1 Thessalonians 001:001 Paul, Silas, and Timothy: To the
Church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and the Lord
Jesus Christ. May grace and peace be granted to you. 001:002 We
continually give thanks to God because of you all, while we make
mention of you in our prayers. 001:003 For we never fail to remember
your works of faith and labours of love and your persistent and
unwavering hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God
and Father; 001:004 knowing as we do, brethren, that you are beloved
by God and that He has chosen you. 001:005 The Good News that we
brought you did not come to you in words only, but also with power
and with the Holy Spirit and with much certainty, for you know the sort
of men we became among you, as examples for your sakes. 001:006
And you followed the pattern set you by us and by the Master, after
you had received the Message amid severe persecution, and yet with
the joy which the Holy Spirit gives, 001:007 so that you became a
pattern to all the believers throughout Macedonia and Greece. 001:008
For it was not only from you that the Master's Message sounded forth
throughout Macedonia and Greece; but everywhere your faith in God
has become known, so that it is unnecessary for us to say anything
about it. 001:009 For when others speak of us they report the reception
we had from you, and how you turned from your idols to God, to be
bondservants of the true and ever-living God, 001:010 and to await the
return from Heaven of His Son, whom He raised from among the
dead--even Jesus, our Deliverer from God's coming anger. 002:001 For
you yourselves, brethren, know that our visit to you did not fail of its
purpose. 002:002 But, as you will remember, after we had already met
with suffering and outrage at Philippi, we summoned up boldness, by

the help of our God, to tell you God's Good News amid much
opposition. 002:003 For our preaching was not grounded on a delusion,
nor prompted by mingled motives, nor was there fraud in it. 002:004
But as God tested and approved us before entrusting us with His Good
News, so in what we say we are seeking not to please men but to please
God, who tests and approves our motives. 002:005 For, as you are well
aware, we have never used the language of flattery nor have we found
pretexts for enriching ourselves-- God is our witness; 002:006 nor did
we seek glory either from you or from any other mere men, although
we might have stood on our dignity as Christ's Apostles. 002:007 On
the contrary, in our relations to you we showed ourselves as gentle as a
mother is when she tenderly nurses her own children. 002:008 Seeing
that we were thus drawn affectionately towards you, it would have been
a joy to us to have imparted to you not only God's Good News, but to
have given our very lives also, because you had become very dear to us.
002:009 For you remember, brethren, our labour and toil: how,
working night and day so as not to become a burden to any one of you,
we came and proclaimed among you God's Good News. 002:010 You
yourselves are witnesses--and God is witness--how holy and upright
