First Thessalonians 5


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