1 Thessalonians 5

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

1 Thessalonians 5:1 But of the tymes & seasons brethre, ye haue no neede that I write vnto you. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For ye your selues knowe perfectlye that the day of the Lord shall so come euen as a theefe in the nyght. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shal say peace & safetie, then shall sodeyne destruction come vppon them, as sorowe vpon a woman with chylde, and they shall not escape. 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But ye brethren are not in darknesse, that that day shoulde ouertake you as a theefe. 1 Thessalonians 5:5 Ye are all the chyldren of lyght, and the chyldren of the daye: We are not of the nyght, neither of darkenesse. 1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let vs not sleepe, as [do] other: but let vs watche and be sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:7 For they that sleepe, sleepe in the night: and they that be druncken, are druncken in the nyght. 1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let vs which are of the day, be sober, puttyng on the brest plate of fayth and loue, and a helmet, the hope of saluation. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appoynted vs to wrath: but to obtayne saluation, by our Lorde Iesus Christe, 1 Thessalonians 5:10 Whiche dyed for vs, that whether we wake or sleepe, we shoulde lyue together with hym. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore comfort your selues together, and edifie euery one another, euen as ye do. 1 Thessalonians 5:12 And we beseche you brethren to know them whiche labour among you, and haue the ouersight of you in the Lorde, and admonishe you: 1 Thessalonians 5:13 That ye haue them in hye reputation, in loue for their worke, and be at peace among your selues. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 We exhort you brethren, warne them that are vnruly, comfort the feeble mynded, lyft vp the weake, be pacient towarde all men. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that none recompence euyll for euyll vnto any man: but euer folowe that whiche is good, both among your selues, and to all men.

and giveth divers precepts,

1 Thessalonians 5:16 Reioyce euer. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray continually. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In all thinges geue thankes. For this [is] the wyl of God in Christe Iesus towarde you. 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quenche not the spirite. 1 Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophesiynges. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Examine all thynges, holde fast that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstayne from all appearaunce of euyll.

and so concludeth the epistle.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace santifie you throughout [And I pray God] that your whole spirite, and soule, and body, may be preserued blamelesse in the comming of our Lorde Iesus Christe. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 Faythfull is he whiche called you, whiche wyll also do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:25 Brethren, pray for vs. 1 Thessalonians 5:26 Greete all the brethren in an holy kysse. 1 Thessalonians 5:27 I charge you in the Lorde, that this epistle be read vnto al the holy brethren. 1 Thessalonians 5:28 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you. Amen. {The first (epistle) vnto the Thessalonians, written from Athens.}
