I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;









(2) "We never set ourselves to prayer without remembering your faithful activity, loving laboriousness, cheerful and persevering endurance, and thanking God for it."

We.--All three are regarded as the writers, and no doubt the sentiments of all are expressed, though the letter is St. Paul's own composition. In 1Thessalonians 2:18 he corrects himself for using "we" where it was only true of himself. It may be noticed that St. Paul never speaks of himself alone in the plural in any of the other Epistles.

To God.--None of the success is due either to the preachers or to the converts.

Always.--Not as meaning "without ceasing," but "on every occasion that reminds us of you;" the words "in our prayers" specify the nappy occasions. Christians like best to be remembered then.

For you all.--"There is not one of you that we know of for whom we cannot give thanks: the whole church is what it should be."

Verse 2. - We. Many expositors (Cony-beare, Koch, Jowett) suppose that the plural is here used for the singular; as Paul elsewhere does in other parts of this Epistle. Thus: "Wherefore we would come unto you, even I Paul, once and again" (1 Thessalonians 2:18); "Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone" (1 Thessalonians 3:1). In these verses the pronoun "we" is evidently restricted to Paul. Still, however, Silvanus and Timotheus being mentioned directly before, it is most natural to include them here. Give thanks to God always for you all. All Paul's Epistles, with the solitary exception of the Epistle to the Galatians, commence with an expression of thanksgiving. Making mention of you in our prayers; whilst we are engaged in prayer for you. Paul's prayer for the Thessalonians took the form of thanksgiving.
