1st Thessalonians Chapter 5 Young's Literal Translation

1st Thessalonians 5:1

And concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need of my writing to you,

1st Thessalonians 5:2

for yourselves have known thoroughly that the day of the Lord as a thief in the night doth so come,

1st Thessalonians 5:3

for when they may say, Peace and surety, then sudden destruction doth stand by them, as the travail `doth' her who is with child, and they shall not escape;

1st Thessalonians 5:4

and ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day may catch you as a thief;

1st Thessalonians 5:5

all ye are sons of light, and sons of day; we are not of night, nor of darkness,

1st Thessalonians 5:6

so, then, we may not sleep as also the others, but watch and be sober,

1st Thessalonians 5:7

for those sleeping, by night do sleep, and those making themselves drunk, by night are drunken,

1st Thessalonians 5:8

and we, being of the day -- let us be sober, putting on a breastplate of faith and love, and an helmet -- a hope of salvation,

1st Thessalonians 5:9

because God did not appoint us to anger, but to the acquiring of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

1st Thessalonians 5:10

who did die for us, that whether we wake -- whether we sleep -- together with him we may live;

1st Thessalonians 5:11

wherefore, comfort ye one another, and build ye up, one the one, as also ye do.

1st Thessalonians 5:12

And we ask you, brethren, to know those labouring among you, and leading you in the Lord, and admonishing you,

1st Thessalonians 5:13

and to esteem them very abundantly in love, because of their work; be at peace among yourselves;

1st Thessalonians 5:14

and we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the infirm, be patient unto all;

1st Thessalonians 5:15

see no one evil for evil may render to any one, but always that which is good pursue ye, both to one another and to all;

1st Thessalonians 5:16

always rejoice ye;

1st Thessalonians 5:17

continually pray ye;

1st Thessalonians 5:18

in every thing give thanks, for this `is' the will of God in Christ Jesus in regard to you.

1st Thessalonians 5:19

The Spirit quench not;

1st Thessalonians 5:20

prophesyings despise not;

1st Thessalonians 5:21

all things prove; that which is good hold fast;

1st Thessalonians 5:22

from all appearance of evil abstain ye;

1st Thessalonians 5:23

and the God of the peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your whole spirit, and soul, and body, be preserved unblameably in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ;

1st Thessalonians 5:24

stedfast is He who is calling you, who also will do `it'.

1st Thessalonians 5:25

Brethren, pray for us;

1st Thessalonians 5:26

salute all the brethren in an holy kiss;

1st Thessalonians 5:27

I charge you `by' the Lord, that the letter be read to all the holy brethren;

1st Thessalonians 5:28

the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ `is' with you! Amen.
