1 Thessalonians 5 (WEBP)

[1] But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that anything be written to you.
[2] For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.
[3] For when they are saying, “Peace and safety,” then sudden destruction will come on them, like birth pains on a pregnant woman. Then they will in no way escape.
[4] But you, brothers, aren’t in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief.
[5] You are all children of light and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night, nor to darkness,
[6] so then let’s not sleep, as the rest do, but let’s watch and be sober.
[7] For those who sleep, sleep in the night; and those who are drunk are drunk in the night.
[8] But since we belong to the day, let’s be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
[9] For God didn’t appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
[10] who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
[11] Therefore exhort one another, and build each other up, even as you also do.
[12] But we beg you, brothers, to know those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you,
[13] and to respect and honor them in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves.
[14] We exhort you, brothers: Admonish the disorderly; encourage the faint-hearted; support the weak; be patient toward all.
[15] See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good for one another and for all.
[16] Always rejoice.
[17] Pray without ceasing.
[18] In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you.
[19] Don’t quench the Spirit.
[20] Don’t despise prophecies.
[21] Test all things, and hold firmly that which is good.
[22] Abstain from every form of evil.
[23] May the God of peace himself sanctify you completely. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
[24] He who calls you is faithful, who will also do it.
[25] Brothers, pray for us.
[26] Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.
[27] I solemnly command you by the Lord that this letter be read to all the holy brothers.
[28] The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

1 Thessalonians 5 (KJVS)

[1] But G1161 of G4012 the times G5550 and G2532 the seasons G2540, brethren G80, ye have G2192 (PresActInd) no G3756 need G5532 that I write G1125 (PresPasInf) unto you G5213.
[2] For G1063 yourselves G846 know G1492 (PerfActInd) perfectly G199 that G3754 the day G2250 of the Lord G2962 so G3779 cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) as G5613 a thief G2812 in G1722 the night G3571.
[3] For G1063 when G3752 they shall say G3004 (PresActSubj), Peace G1515 and G2532 safety G803; then G5119 sudden G160 destruction G3639 cometh upon G2186 (PresMidInd) them G846, as G5618 travail G5604 upon G1722 a woman with child G1064 G2192 (PresActPtc); and G2532 they shall G1628 not G3364 escape G1628 (Aor2ActSubj).
[4] But G1161 ye G5210, brethren G80, are G2075 (PresInd) not G3756 in G1722 darkness G4655, that G2443 that day G2250 should overtake G2638 (Aor2ActSubj) you G5209 as G5613 a thief G2812.
[5] Ye G5210 are G2075 (PresInd) all G3956 the children G5207 of light G5457, and G2532 the children G5207 of the day G2250: we are G2070 (PresInd) not G3756 of the night G3571, nor G3761 of darkness G4655.
[6] Therefore G686 G3767 let us G2518 not G3361 sleep G2518 (PresActSubj), as G5613 G2532 [do] others G3062; but G235 let us watch G1127 (PresActSubj) and G2532 be sober G3525 (PresActSubj).
[7] For G1063 they that sleep G2518 (PresActPtc) sleep G2518 (PresActInd) in the night G3571; and G2532 they that be drunken G3182 (PresPasPtc) are drunken G3184 (PresActInd) in the night G3571.
[8] But G1161 let G3525 us G2249, who are G5607 (PresPtc) of the day G2250, be sober G3525 (PresActSubj), putting on G1746 (AorMidPtc) the breastplate G2382 of faith G4102 and G2532 love G26; and G2532 for an helmet G4030, the hope G1680 of salvation G4991.
[9] For G3754 God G2316 hath G5087 not G3756 appointed G5087 (Aor2MidInd) us G2248 to G1519 wrath G3709, but G235 to G1519 obtain G4047 salvation G4991 by G1223 our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547,
[10] Who G3588 died G599 (Aor2ActPtc) for G5228 us G2257, that G2443, whether G1535 we wake G1127 (PresActSubj) or G1535 sleep G2518 (PresActSubj), we should live G2198 (AorActSubj) together G260 with G4862 him G846.
[11] Wherefore G1352 comfort G3870 (PresActImpr) yourselves together G240, and G2532 edify G3618 (PresActImpr) one G1520 another G1520, even G2531 as also G2532 ye do G4160 (PresActInd).
[12] And G1161 we beseech G2065 (PresActInd) you G5209, brethren G80, to know G1492 (PerfActInf) them which G3588 labour G2872 (PresActPtc) among G1722 you G5213, and G2532 are over G4291 (PresMidPtc) you G5216 in G1722 the Lord G2962, and G2532 admonish G3560 (PresActPtc) you G5209;
[13] And G2532 to esteem G2233 (PresMidPasDepInf) them G846 very G5228 highly G1537 G4053 in G1722 love G26 for G1223 their G846 work’s sake G2041. [And] be at peace G1514 (PresActImpr) among G1722 yourselves G1438.
[14] Now G1161 we exhort G3870 (PresActInd) you G5209, brethren G80, warn G3560 (PresActImpr) them that are unruly G813, comfort G3888 (PresMidPasDepImpr) the feebleminded G3642, support G472 (PresMidPasDepImpr) the weak G772, be patient G3114 (PresActImpr) toward G4314 all G3956 [men].
[15] See G3708 (PresActImpr) that none G3361 G5100 render G591 (Aor2ActSubj) evil G2556 for G473 evil G2556 unto any G5100 [man]; but G235 ever G3842 follow G1377 (PresActImpr) that which G3588 is good G18, both G2532 among G1519 yourselves G240, and G2532 to G1519 all G3956 [men].
[16] Rejoice G5463 (PresActImpr) evermore G3842.
[17] Pray G4336 (PresMidPasDepImpr) without ceasing G89.
[18] In G1722 every thing G3956 give thanks G2168 (PresActImpr): for G1063 this G5124 is the will G2307 of God G2316 in G1722 Christ G5547 Jesus G2424 concerning G1519 you G5209.
[19] Quench G4570 (PresActImpr) not G3361 the Spirit G4151.
[20] Despise G1848 (PresActImpr) not G3361 prophesyings G4394.
[21] Prove G1381 (PresActImpr) all things G3956; hold fast G2722 (PresActImpr) that which G3588 is good G2570.
[22] Abstain G567 (PresMidImpr) from G575 all G3956 appearance G1491 of evil G4190.
[23] And G1161 the very G846 God G2316 of peace G1515 sanctify G37 (AorActOpt) you G5209 wholly G3651; and G2532 [I pray God] your G5216 whole G3648 spirit G4151 and G2532 soul G5590 and G2532 body G4983 be preserved G5083 (AorPasOpt) blameless G274 unto G1722 the coming G3952 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547.
[24] Faithful G4103 [is] he that calleth G2564 (PresActPtc) you G5209, who G3739 also G2532 will do G4160 (FutActInd) [it].
[25] Brethren G80, pray G4336 (PresMidPasDepImpr) for G4012 us G2257.
[26] Greet G782 (AorMidDepImpr) all G3956 the brethren G80 with G1722 an holy G40 kiss G5370.
[27] I charge G3726 (PresActInd) you G5209 by the Lord G2962 that this epistle G1992 be read G314 (AorPasInf) unto all G3956 the holy G40 brethren G80.
[28] The grace G5485 of our G2257 Lord G2962 Jesus G2424 Christ G5547 [be] with G3326 you G5216. Amen G281. «[The first G4413 [epistle] to G4314 the Thessalonians G2331 was written G1125 (Aor2PasDepSubj) from G575 Athens G116.]»

Young’s Literal Translation

1 Thessalonians 5 (YLT)

[1] And concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need of my writing to you,
[2] for yourselves have known thoroughly that the day of the Lord as a thief in the night doth so come,
[3] for when they may say, Peace and surety, then sudden destruction doth stand by them, as the travail doth her who is with child, and they shall not escape;
[4] and ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day may catch you as a thief;
[5] all ye are sons of light, and sons of day; we are not of night, nor of darkness,
[6] so, then, we may not sleep as also the others, but watch and be sober,
[7] for those sleeping, by night do sleep, and those making themselves drunk, by night are drunken,
[8] and we, being of the day-let us be sober, putting on a breastplate of faith and love, and an helmet-a hope of salvation,
[9] because God did not appoint us to anger, but to the acquiring of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
[10] who did die for us, that whether we wake-whether we sleep-together with him we may live;
[11] wherefore, comfort ye one another, and build ye up, one the one, as also ye do.
[12] And we ask you, brethren, to know those labouring among you, and leading you in the Lord, and admonishing you,
[13] and to esteem them very abundantly in love, because of their work; be at peace among yourselves;
[14] and we exhort you, brethren, admonish the disorderly, comfort the feeble-minded, support the infirm, be patient unto all;
[15] see no one evil for evil may render to any one, but always that which is good pursue ye, both to one another and to all;
[16] always rejoice ye;
[17] continually pray ye;
[18] in every thing give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus in regard to you.
[19] The Spirit quench not;
[20] prophesyings despise not;
[21] all things prove; that which is good hold fast;
[22] from all appearance of evil abstain ye;
[23] and the God of the peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your whole spirit, and soul, and body, be preserved unblameably in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ;
[24] stedfast is He who is calling you, who also will do it.
[25] Brethren, pray for us;
[26] salute all the brethren in an holy kiss;
[27] I charge you by the Lord, that the letter be read to all the holy brethren;
[28] the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you! Amen.
