Tyndale New Testament
1Of the times and seasons brethren ye have no need that I write unto you: 2for ye your selves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall come even as a thief in the night. 3When they shall say peace and no danger, then cometh on them sudden destruction, as the travailing of a woman with child, and they shall not escape. 4But ye brethren are not in darkness, that that day should come on you as it were a thief. 5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, neither of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep as do other: but let us watch and be sober. 7For they that sleep, sleep in the night: and they that be drunken, are drunken in the night. 8But let us which are of the day be sober, armed with the breast plate of faith and love, and with hope of health, as an helmet. 9For God hath not appointed us unto wrath: but to obtain health by the means of our Lord Iesu Christ, 10which died for us: that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as ye do.
12We beseech you brethren, that ye know them which labour among you, and have the oversight of you in the Lord, 13and give you exhortation, that ye have them the more in love, For their work's sake, and be at peace with them. 14We desire you brethren warn them that are unruly, comfort the feeble minded, forbear the weak have continual patience toward all men. 15See that none recompense evil for evil unto any man: but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 16Rejoice ever. 17Pray continually. 18In all things give thanks. For this is the will of God in Christ Iesu toward you. 19Quench not the spirit, 20despise not prophesying. 21Examine all things. Reap that which is good. 22Abstain from all suspicious thing.
23The very God of peace sanctify you thorowout. And I pray God that your whole spirit, soul, and body, be kept faultless unto the coming of our Lord Iesus Christ. 24Faithful is he, which called you: which will also do it.
25Brethren, pray for us.
28The grace of the Lord Iesus Christe be with you. Amen.
