1st Thessalonians Chapter 5 Darby English Bible

1st Thessalonians 5:1

But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that ye should be written to,

1st Thessalonians 5:2

for ye know perfectly well yourselves, that the day of [the] Lord so comes as a thief by night.

1st Thessalonians 5:3

When they may say, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon her that is with child; and they shall in no wise escape.

1st Thessalonians 5:4

But *ye*, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you as a thief:

1st Thessalonians 5:5

for all *ye* are sons of light and sons of day; we are not of night nor of darkness.

1st Thessalonians 5:6

So then do not let us sleep as the rest do, but let us watch and be sober;

1st Thessalonians 5:7

for they that sleep sleep by night, and they that drink drink by night;

1st Thessalonians 5:8

but *we* being of [the] day, let us be sober, putting on [the] breastplate of faith and love, and as helmet [the] hope of salvation;

1st Thessalonians 5:9

because God has not set us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

1st Thessalonians 5:10

who has died for us, that whether we may be watching or sleep, we may live together with him.

1st Thessalonians 5:11

Wherefore encourage one another, and build up each one the other, even as also ye do.

1st Thessalonians 5:12

But we beg you, brethren, to know those who labour among you, and take the lead among you in [the] Lord, and admonish you,

1st Thessalonians 5:13

and to regard them exceedingly in love on account of their work. Be in peace among yourselves.

1st Thessalonians 5:14

But we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, comfort the faint-hearted, sustain the weak, be patient towards all.

1st Thessalonians 5:15

See that no one render to any evil for evil, but pursue always what is good towards one another and towards all;

1st Thessalonians 5:16

rejoice always;

1st Thessalonians 5:17

pray unceasingly;

1st Thessalonians 5:18

in everything give thanks, for this is [the] will of God in Christ Jesus towards you;

1st Thessalonians 5:19

quench not the Spirit;

1st Thessalonians 5:20

do not lightly esteem prophecies;

1st Thessalonians 5:21

but prove all things, hold fast the right;

1st Thessalonians 5:22

hold aloof from every form of wickedness.

1st Thessalonians 5:23

Now the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly: and your whole spirit, and soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you.
