Modern Literal Version

[1 Thessalonians 5]

     5:1 Now brethren, you* have no need for anything to be written to you* concerning the times and the seasons. 5:2 For* you yourselves know accurately that the day of the Lord so comes like a thief in the night. 5:3 For* whenever they say, Peace and security; then sudden utter-destruction stands by them, just-like the travail a woman has in her womb, and they should never flee away from it. 5:4 But brethren, you* are not in darkness, in order that the day might overtake you* like a thief. 5:5 You* are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night, nor of darkness; 5:6Therefore consequently*, we should not sleep, like the rest also do, but let us watch and be sober.5:7 For* those who are sleeping, sleep in the night, and those who are drunken, are drunken in the night. 5:8 But we, being of the day, should be sober; having clothed yourselves with the breastplate of faith and love*, and a helmetС the hope of salvation. 5:9 Because God appointed* us not *for wrath, but *for the acquisition of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 5:10 who died on our behalf, in order that, whether we should watch or sleep, we should live together with him at the same time. 5:11 Hence, encourage* one another and build* up one by one, just-as you* are also practicing.

     5:12 But brethren, we request of you* to know those who are laboring among you*, and are governing over you*, and admonishing you* in the Lord; 5:13 and to deem them exceptionally in love* because of their work. Be* at peace among yourselves. 5:14 But brethren, we encourage you*: admonish* the disorderly, console* the fainthearted, hold up the weak, have* patience toward all.5:15 See*that not anyone should repay evil in exchange-for evil to anyone, but always pursue* the good, both toward one another and toward all. 5:16 Rejoice* always. 5:17 Pray* constantly. 5:18 Give-thanks* in everything; for* this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you*. 5:19 Do* not quench the Spirit. 5:20 Do* not scorn prophecies. 5:21 Now test* all things! Hold-onto* the good things! 5:22Abstain* from every form of evil!

     5:23 Now may the God of peace himself make you* entirely holy, and may your* whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. 5:24He is faithful who calls you*, who will also do*it.

     5:25 Brethren, pray* concerning us.

     5:26 Greet* all the brethren by a holy kiss. 5:27 I am imploring you*by the Lord, that this letter be read to all the holy brethren.

     5:28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you*. Amen.
