And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.

As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.
