1 Thessalonians 1
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, to the assembly of Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

2We always give thanks to God for you all, making mention of you in our prayers, 3unceasingly remembering your work of faith, and the labor of the love, and the endurance of the hope, of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the presence of our God and Father, 4having known, beloved brothers, by God, your [divine] selection, 5because our good news did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and in much assurance, even as you have known of what sort we became among you for your sake, 6and you became imitators of us and of the LORD, having received the word in much tribulation with joy of the Holy Spirit, 7so that you became patterns to all those believing in Macedonia and Achaia, 8for from you has sounded forth the word of the LORD, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God went forth, so that we have no need to say anything, 9for they themselves declare concerning us what entrance we had to you, and how you turned to God from the idols, to serve a living and true God, 10and to wait for His Son from the heavens, whom He raised out of the dead—Jesus, who is rescuing us from the anger that is coming.
