1 Concerning but the times and the seasons, brethren, no need you have to you to be written;
2 yourselves for accurately you know, that the day of Lord, as a thief in night, so comes.
3 When they may say: Peace and safety; then sudden to them is at hand destruction, just as the birthpang to her in womb having; and not not can they escape.
4 You but, brethren, not are in darkness, that the day you as a thief should come upon;
5 all for you sons of light are and sons of day; not we are of night, nor of darkness.
6 So then not we may sleep, as even the others, but we should watch and we should not drink;
7 those for sleeping, of night they sleep; and those getting drunk, of night they get drunk.
8 We but, of day being, should not drink, having put on a breastplate of faith and of love, and a helmet, a hope of salvation;
9 because not did set us the God for wrath, but for attaining of salvation by means of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed,
10 of that having died on behalf of us; so that, whether we may be awake or we may be asleep, together with him we may live.
11 Wherefore comfort you each other, and build you up one the other, as even you do.
12 We entreat but you, brethren, to know those toiling among you, and presiding over you in Lord, and admonishing you,
13 and to esteem them superabundantly in love, on account of the work of them; be you at peace among yourselves.
14 We exhort but you, brethren, admonish you the disorderly ones, encourage you the desponding ones, hold you on to the feeble ones, be you longsuffering towards all.
15 See you, no one evil in place of evil to any one should render; but always the good pursue you both towards each other and towards all.
16 Always rejoice you.
17 Unceasingly pray you;
18 in every thing give you thanks; this for will of God in Anointed Jesus concerning you.
19 The spirit not quench you;
20 prophecies not disregard you;
21 all things but try you; the good thing hold you fast;
22 from every form of evil do you abstain.
23 Himself but the God of the peace may sanctify you entirely; and whole of you the spirit and the life and the body blameless in the presence of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed may be preserved.
24 Faithful the one calling you, who also will perform.
25 Brethren, pray you for us.
26 Salute you the brethren all with a kiss holy.
27 I adjure you the Lord, to be read the letter to all the holy brethren.
28 The favor of the Lord of us Jesus Anointed with you.
