Murdock(i) 1 PAUL and Sylvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians, which is in God our Father and our Lord Jesus the Messiah: 2 Grace be with you, and peace, from God our Father, and from our Lord Jesus the Messiah. 3 We are bound to give thanks to God always, on your account, my brethren, as it is proper; because your faith groweth exceedingly, and, in you all, the love of each for his fellow increaseth. 4 Insomuch that we also boast of you in the churches of God, on account of your faith, and your patience in all the persecution and trials that ye endure; 5 for a demonstration of the righteous judgment of God; that ye may be worthy of his kingdom, on account of which ye suffer. 6 And since it is a righteous thing with God, to recompense trouble to them that trouble you: 7 and you, who are the troubled, he will vivify, with us, at the manifestation of our Lord Jesus the Messiah from heaven, with the host of his angels; 8 when he will execute vengeance, with the burning of fire, on them that know not God, and on them that acknowledge not the gospel of our Lord Jesus the Messiah. 9 For these will be recompensed with the judgment of eternal destruction, from the presence of our Lord, and from the glory of his power; 10 when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to display his wonders in his faithful ones; for our testimony concerning you, will be believed, in that day. 11 Therefore we pray for you, at all times; that God would make you worthy of your calling, and would fill you with all readiness for good deeds, and with the works of faith by power; 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus the Messiah, may be glorified in you, (and) ye also in him; according to the grace of God, and of our Lord Jesus the Messiah.
