Concern for Their Faith


1 Therefore, when we could no longer endure it, we thought it good to be left in Athens alone,
2 and sent aTimothy, our brother and minister of God, and our fellow laborer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you and encourage you concerning your faith,
3 athat no one should be shaken by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that bwe are appointed to this.
4 aFor, in fact, we told you before when we were with you that we would suffer tribulation, just as it happened, and you know.
5 For this reason, when I could no longer endure it, I sent to know your faith, alest by some means the tempter had tempted you, and bour labor might be in vain.

Encouraged by Timothy

6 aBut now that Timothy has come to us from you, and brought us good news of your faith and love, and that you always have good remembrance of us, greatly desiring to see us, bas we also to see you—
7 therefore, brethren, in all our affliction and distress awe were comforted concerning you by your faith.
8 For now we live, if you astand fast in the Lord.
9 For what thanks can we render

page 1040


to God for you, for all the joy with which we rejoice for your sake before our God,
10 night and day praying exceedingly that we may see your face aand perfect what is lacking in your faith?

Prayer for the Church

11 Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, adirect our way to you.
12 And may the Lord make you increase and aabound in love to one another and to all, just as we do to you,
13 so that He may establish ayour hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.

Plea for Purity


1 Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus athat you should abound more and more, bjust as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God;
2 for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is athe will of God, byour sanctification: cthat you should abstain from sexual immorality;
4 athat each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
5 anot in passion of lust, blike the Gentiles cwho do not know God;
6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord ais the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.
7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, abut in holiness.
8 aTherefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, bwho1 has also given us His Holy Spirit.

A Brotherly and Orderly Life

9 But concerning brotherly love you have no need that I should write to you, for ayou yourselves are taught by God bto love one another;
10 and indeed you do so toward all the brethren who are in all Macedonia. But we urge you, brethren, athat you increase more and more;
11 that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, ato mind your own business, and bto work with your own hands, as we commanded you,
12 athat you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing.

The Comfort of Christ’s Coming

16 For athe Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with bthe trumpet of God. cAnd the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 aThen we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them bin the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus cwe shall always be with the Lord.

The Hope of the Faithful, and the Messiah’s Victory

A aMichtam of David.

1 PRESERVE1 me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
2 O my soul, you have said to the LORD, “You are my Lord, aMy goodness is nothing apart from You.”
3 As for the saints who are on the earth, “They are the excellent ones, in awhom is all my delight.”

4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied who hasten after another god; Their drink offerings of ablood I will not offer, bNor take up their names on my lips.

5 O LORD, You are the portion of my inheritance and my cup; You 1maintain my lot.
