1 G3972 Paul, G4610 and Silvanus, G5095 and Timotheus, G1577 to the church G2331 of the Thessalonians G2316 which is in God G3962 the Father G2962 and in the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ: G5485 Grace G1515 be to you, and peace, G2316 from God G3962 our Father, G2962 and the Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ.
2 G2168 We give thanks G2316 to God G3842 always G3956 for you all, G4160 making G3417 mention G4335 of you in our prayers;
3 G3421 Remembering G89 without G89 ceasing G5209 your G2041 work G4102 of faith, G2873 and labor G25 of love, G5281 and patience G1680 of hope G2962 in our Lord G2424 Jesus G5547 Christ, G1715 in the sight G2316 of God G3962 and our Father;
5 G2098 For our gospel G1096 came G3056 not to you in word G3440 only, G2532 but also G1411 in power, G40 and in the Holy G4151 Ghost, G4183 and in much G4136 assurance; G1492 as you know G3634 what G3634 manner G1722 of men we were among G5209 you for your sake.
6 G1096 And you became G3402 followers G2962 of us, and of the Lord, G1209 having received G3056 the word G4183 in much G2347 affliction, G5479 with joy G40 of the Holy G4151 Ghost.
7 G5620 So G5179 that you were ensamples G3956 to all G4100 that believe G3109 in Macedonia G882 and Achaia.
8 G1837 For from you sounded G3056 out the word G2962 of the Lord G3440 not only G3109 in Macedonia G882 and Achaia, G2532 but also G3956 in every G5117 place G5216 your G4102 faith G4314 to God-ward G2316 G1831 is spread G1831 abroad; G5620 so G2192 that we need G5532 G2980 not to speak G5100 any thing.
9 G846 For they themselves G518 show G3697 of us what G3697 manner G1529 of entering G2192 in we had G4459 to you, and how G1994 you turned G2316 to God G1497 from idols G1398 to serve G2198 the living G228 and true G2316 God;
