kjv@1Thessalonians:1:1@ Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
kjv@1Thessalonians:1:8@ For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
kjv@1Thessalonians:1:9@ For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God;
kjv@1Thessalonians:1:10@ And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:2@ But even after that we had suffered before, and were shamefully entreated, as ye know, at Philippi, we were bold in our God to speak unto you the gospel of God with much contention.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:13@ 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.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:14@ For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:15@ Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:16@ Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:17@ But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:18@ Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us.
kjv@1Thessalonians:2:19@ For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:1@ Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:2@ And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:3@ That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:4@ For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:5@ For this cause, 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.
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:6@ 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:
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:7@ Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:12@ And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:
kjv@1Thessalonians:3:13@ To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
kjv@1Thessalonians:4:1@ 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.
