  • 1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
  • 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
  • 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
  • 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
  • 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
  • 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
  • 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
  • 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
  • 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
  • 10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
  • 11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
  • 12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
  • 13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
  • 14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
  • 15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
  • 16 Rejoice evermore.
  • 17 Pray without ceasing.
  • 18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
  • 19 Quench not the Spirit.
  • 20 Despise not prophesyings.
  • 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
  • 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
  • 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • 24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
  • 25 Brethren, pray for us.
  • 26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
  • 27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
  • 28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
