Weymouth Bible – 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5

1-Thessalonians 5:1
But as to times and dates it is unnecessary that anything be written to you.

1-Thessalonians 5:2
For you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.

1-Thessalonians 5:3
While they are saying “Peace and safety!” then in a moment destruction falls upon them, like birth-pains on a woman who is with child; and escape there is none.

1-Thessalonians 5:4
But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that daylight should surprise you like a thief;

1-Thessalonians 5:5
for all of you are sons of light and sons of the day. We belong neither to the night nor to darkness.

1-Thessalonians 5:6
So then let us not sleep, like the rest of the world, but let us keep awake and be sober.

1-Thessalonians 5:7
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who drink freely, drink at night.

1-Thessalonians 5:8
But let us, belonging–as we do–to the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

1-Thessalonians 5:9
For God has not pre-destined us to meet His anger, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ;

1-Thessalonians 5:10
who died on our behalf, so that whether we are awake or are sleeping we may share His Life.

1-Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another, and let each one help to strengthen his friend, as in fact you do.

1-Thessalonians 5:12
Now we beg you, brethren, to show respect for those who labour among you and are your leaders in Christian work, and are your advisers;

1-Thessalonians 5:13
and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.

1-Thessalonians 5:14
And we exhort you, brethren, admonish the unruly, comfort the timid, sustain the weak, and be patient towards all.

1-Thessalonians 5:15
See to it that no one ever repays another with evil for evil; but always seek opportunities of doing good both to one another and to all the world.

1-Thessalonians 5:16
Be always joyful.

1-Thessalonians 5:17
Be unceasing in prayer.

1-Thessalonians 5:18
In every circumstance of life be thankful; for this is God’s will in Christ Jesus respecting you.

1-Thessalonians 5:19
Do not quench the Spirit.

1-Thessalonians 5:20
Do not think meanly of utterances of prophecy;

1-Thessalonians 5:21
but test all such, and retain hold of the good.

1-Thessalonians 5:22
Hold yourselves aloof from every form of evil.

1-Thessalonians 5:23
And may God Himself who gives peace, make you entirely holy; and may your spirits, souls and bodies be preserved complete and be found blameless at the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1-Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is He who calls you, and He will also perfect His work.

1-Thessalonians 5:25
Brethren, pray for us.

1-Thessalonians 5:26
Greet all the brethren with a holy kiss.

1-Thessalonians 5:27
I solemnly charge you in the Lord’s name to have this Letter read to all the brethren.

1-Thessalonians 5:28
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
