1 Thessalonians 5

He proceedeth in the former description of Christ's coming to judgment,

1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, yee haue no need that I write vnto you. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For your selues knowe perfectly that the day of the Lord so commeth as a thiefe in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shal say, Peace and safety: then sudden destructio commeth vpon them, as trauaile vpon a woman with childe, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkenesse, that that day should ouertake you as a thiefe. 1 Thessalonians 5:5 Yee are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkenesse. 1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let vs not sleepe, as [doe] others: but let vs watch and be sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:7 For they that sleepe, sleepe in the night, and they that bee drunken, are drunken in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let vs who are of the day, bee sober, putting on the brestplate of faith and loue, and for an helmet, the hope of saluation. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed vs to wrath: but to obtaine saluation by our Lord Iesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:10 Who died for vs, that whether we wake or sleepe, we should liue together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore, comfort your selues together, and edifie one another, euen as also ye doe. 1 Thessalonians 5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are ouer you in the Lord, and admonish you: 1 Thessalonians 5:13 And to esteeme them very highly in loue for their workes sake, and be at peace among your selues. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warne them that are vnruly, comfort the feeble minded, support the weake, be patient toward all men. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that none render euill for euill vnto any man: but euer follow that which is good, both among your selues and to all men.

and giveth divers precepts,

1 Thessalonians 5:16 Reioyce euermore: 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing: 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In euery thing giue thankes: for this is the will of God in Christ Iesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the spirit: 1 Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophecyings: 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Proue all things: hold fast that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstaine from all appearance of euill.

and so concludeth the epistle.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctifie you wholly: and [I pray God] your whole spirit, and soule, and body be preserued blamelesse vnto the comming of our Lord Iesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 Faithfull is hee that calleth you, who also will doe it. 1 Thessalonians 5:25 Brethren, pray for vs. 1 Thessalonians 5:26 Greete all the brethren with an holy kisse. 1 Thessalonians 5:27 I charge you by the Lord, that this Epistle bee read vnto all the holy brethren. 1 Thessalonians 5:28 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you, Amen. {The first Epistle vnto the Thessalonians, was written from Athens.}
