Greetings from Paul, Silas and Timothy
(1 Thessalonians 1:1-10; Philemon 1:1-3)
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and
the Lord Jesus Christ: 2Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanksgiving for Their Faith
(1 Corinthians 1:4-9; Philippians 1:3-11; Colossians 1:3-14)
3We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith
groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 4So
that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your
persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:
Christ's Coming
5[Which is] a manifest token of the righteous judgment 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
recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; 7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when
the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, 8In flaming fire taking
vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the
glory of his power; 10When 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) in that day. 11Wherefore also
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 the Lord
Jesus Christ.

The Man of Sin
1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering
together unto him, 2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by
word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3Let no man deceive you by
any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of
sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called
God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he
is God. 5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now ye
know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7For the mystery of iniquity doth
already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. 8And then shall
that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall
destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9[Even him], whose coming is after the working of
Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10And with all deceivableness of
unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved. 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe
a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in
Stand Firm
13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because
God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief
of the truth: 14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord
Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught,
whether by word, or our epistle.
16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath
given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17Comfort your hearts, and
stablish you in every good word and work.

Paul's Request for Prayer
1Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have [free] course, and be glorified,
even as [it is] with you: 2And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all
[men] have not faith. 3But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep [you] from evil.
4And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we
command you. 5And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting
for Christ.
Warning against Idleness
6Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw
yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received
of us. 7For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly
among you; 8Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail
night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you: 9Not because we have not power,
but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us. 10For even when we were with you, this
we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. 11For we hear that there
are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies. 12Now them
that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and
eat their own bread. 13But ye, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
14And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him,
that he may be ashamed. 15Yet count [him] not as an enemy, but admonish [him] as a brother.
Paul's Final Greetings
(1 Corinthians 16:19-24)
16Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord [be] with you all.
17The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write. 18The
grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.
