1 Thessalonians 5

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

1 Thessalonians 5:1 Bvt of the times and seasons, brethren, yee haue no neede that I write vnto you. 1 Thessalonians 5:2 For ye your selues knowe perfectly, that the day of the Lorde shall come, euen as a thiefe in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace, and safetie, then shall come vpon them sudden destruction, as the trauaile vpon a woman with childe, and they shall not escape, 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkenes, that that day shal come on you, as it were 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, neither of darkenesse. 1 Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let vs not sleepe as do other, but let vs watch and be sober. 1 Thessalonians 5:7 For they that sleepe, sleepe in the night, and they that be drunken, are drunken in the night. 1 Thessalonians 5:8 But let vs which are of the day, be sober, putting on the brest plate of faith and loue, and of the hope of saluation for an helmet. 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed vs vnto wrath, but to obtaine saluation by the meanes of our Lord Iesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:10 Which died for vs, that whether we wake or sleepe, we should liue together with him. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore exhort one another, and edifie one another, euen as ye doe. 1 Thessalonians 5:12 Nowe we beseeche you, brethren, that ye acknowledge them, which labour among you, and are ouer you in the Lorde, & admonish you, 1 Thessalonians 5:13 That yee haue them in singular loue for their workes sake. Bee at peace among your selues. 1 Thessalonians 5:14 We desire you, brethren, admonish them that are out of order: comfort ye feeble minded: beare with the weake: be pacient toward all men. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that none recompense euil for euil vnto any man: but euer folow that which is good, both toward your selues, and toward all men.

and giveth divers precepts,

1 Thessalonians 5:16 Reioyce euermore. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray continually. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In all thinges giue thankes: for this is the will of God in Christ Iesus toward you. 1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit. 1 Thessalonians 5:20 Despise not prophecying. 1 Thessalonians 5:21 Try all things, & keepe that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Absteine from all appearance of euill.

and so concludeth the epistle.

1 Thessalonians 5:23 Nowe the very God of peace sanctifie you throughout: and I pray God that your whole spirite and soule and body, may be kept blamelesse vnto the comming of our Lord Iesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 Faithfull is hee which calleth you, which will also 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 in the Lorde, that this Epistle be read vnto all the brethren the Saintes. 1 Thessalonians 5:28 The grace of our Lord Iesus Christ be with you, Amen. {The first Epistle vnto the Thessalonians written from Athens.}
