Etheridge(i) 1 PAULOS, and Sylvanos, and Timotheos, to the church of the Thesalonikoyee which (is) in Aloha the Father, and in our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. Grace be with you and peace. 2 We give thanks to Aloha at all time for you all and are mindful of you in our prayers constantly, 3 and remember before Aloha the Father the works of your faith, and the labour of your love, and the perseverance of your hope, which is in our Lord Jeshu Meshiha. 4 For we know your election, my brethren, beloved of Aloha, 5 because our preaching was not in words only with you, but with power, and with the Spirit of Holiness, and with the persuasion of truth. Also you know how we were among you, on account of you; 6 and you became imitators of us and of our Lord, and you received the word in great affliction, and with the joy of the Spirit of Holiness, 7 and became an example to all the believers who are in Makedunia and in Akaia. 8 For from you was made to be heard the word of our Lord, not only in Makedunia and in Akaia, but in every place your faith which is in Aloha was made to be heard, so that we have no need to say of you any thing. 9 For they learned what an entrance we had unto you, and how you turned to Aloha, from the fear of idols, to worship Aloha the living and the true; 10 awaiting his Son from heaven, Jeshu himself, whom he raised from among the dead, and who delivered us from the wrath that cometh.
