|<< 1 Thessalonians 1 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Paulus and Sylvanus and Timotheus to the church of Thessaloniqa in God The Father and in our Lord Yeshua The Messiah. Grace be with you and peace.
2We thank God always for all of you, and we are reminded of you in our prayers constantly.
3And we recall before God The Father the works of your faith, the labor of your love and patience of your hope, which are in our Lord Yeshua The Messiah.
4For we know your election, brethren, beloved of God,
5Because our evangelism was not in words only, but it was to you also in power and in The Spirit of Holiness and in true conviction. You also know how we have been among you for your sakes.
6And you imitated us and Our Lord, for you received the word in great affliction and in the joy of The Spirit of Holiness.
7And you have been a model to all believers who are in Macedonia and in Akaia.
8For the word of our Lord has been heard from you, not only in Maqedonia and in Akaia, but in every place your faith in God is heard, so that we will not need to say anything about you.
9For they relate what an introduction we had to you and how you were turned to God from the worship of idols to serve The Living and True God,
10While you await his Son from Heaven, Yeshua, him whom he raised from among the dead; He is The One who delivers us from the fury that is coming.
