First Thessalonians 4

4:1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort [you]
 by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received from us how ye
 ought to walk and to please God, [so] ye would abound more and
4:2 For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus.
4:3 For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification,
 that ye should abstain from lewdness.
4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel
 in sanctification and honor;
4:5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles who
 know not God:
4:6 That no [man] go beyond and defraud his brother in [any]
 matter: because the Lord [is] the avenger of all such, as we
 also have forewarned you and testified.
4:7 For God hath not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness.
4:8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who
 hath also given to us his holy Spirit.
4:9 But concerning brotherly love ye need not that I write to
 you: for ye yourselves are taught by God to love one another.
4:10 And indeed ye do it towards all the brethren who are in all
 Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more
 and more;
4:11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business,
 and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;
4:12 That ye may walk honestly towards them that are without,
 and [that] ye may have need of nothing.
4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren,
 concerning them who are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as
 others who have no hope.
4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so
 them also who sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
4:15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who
 are alive [and] remain to the coming of the Lord shall not
 precede them who are asleep.
4:16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
 with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God:
 and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
4:17 Then we who are alive [and] remain shall be caught up
 together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
 and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
4:18 Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.
