Chapter 5

1TH.5:1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.
1TH.5:2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
1TH.5:3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
1TH.5:4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
1TH.5:5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
1TH.5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
1TH.5:7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
1TH.5:8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
1TH.5:9 For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
1TH.5:10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
1TH.5:11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
1TH.5:12 And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you,
1TH.5:13 and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
1TH.5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all.
1TH.5:15 See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
1TH.5:16 Rejoice always,
1TH.5:17 pray without ceasing,
1TH.5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1TH.5:19 Do not quench the Spirit.
1TH.5:20 Do not despise prophecies.
1TH.5:21 Test all things; hold fast what is good.
1TH.5:22 Abstain from every form of evil.
1TH.5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1TH.5:24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.
1TH.5:25 Brethren, pray for us.
1TH.5:26 Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.
1TH.5:27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read to all the holy brethren.
1TH.5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
