1Th 5:1But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need for anything to be written to you;

1Th 5:2For you yourselves know perfectly well that like a thief in the night, so the day of the Lord comes.

1Th 5:3When they say, Peace and security, then sudden destruction comes upon them, just as birth pangs to a woman with child; and they shall by no means escape.

1Th 5:4But you, brothers, are not in darkness that the day should overtake you like a thief;

1Th 5:5For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

1Th 5:6So then let us not sleep, as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober.

1Th 5:7For those who sleep, sleep during the night, and those who get drunk are drunk during the night;

1Th 5:8But since we are of the day, let us be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and a helmet, the hope of salvation.

1Th 5:9For God did not appoint us to wrath but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

1Th 5:10Who died for us in order that whether we watch or sleep, we may live together with Him.

1Th 5:11Therefore comfort one another, and build up each one the other, even as you also do.

1Th 5:12Furthermore we ask you, brothers, to acknowledge those who labor among you and take the lead among you in the Lord and admonish you,

1Th 5:13And to regard them most highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.

1Th 5:14And we exhort you, brothers, Admonish the disorderly, console the fainthearted, sustain the weak, be long-suffering toward all.

1Th 5:15See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always pursue what is good both for one another and for all.

1Th 5:16Always rejoice,

1Th 5:17Unceasingly pray,

1Th 5:18In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1Th 5:19Do not quench the Spirit;

1Th 5:20Do not despise prophecies,

1Th 5:21But prove all things. Hold fast to what is good;

1Th 5:22Abstain from every kind of evil.

1Th 5:23And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Th 5:24Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it.

1Th 5:25Brothers, pray also for us.

1Th 5:26Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.

1Th 5:27I adjure you by the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers.

1Th 5:28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
