1st Thessalonians   chapter 1

       1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the
      church of the Thessalonians which is in God the
      Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be
      unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and
      the Lord Jesus Christ.
       2 We give thanks to God always for you all,
      making mention of you in our prayers;
       3 Remembering without ceasing your work of
      faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope
      in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God
      and our Father;
       4 Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of
       5 For our gospel came not unto you in word
      only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost,
      and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of
      men we were among you for your sake.
       6 And ye became followers of us, and of the
      Lord, having received the word in much
      affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost:
       7 So that ye were ensamples to all that believe
      in Macedonia and Achaia.
       8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord
      not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in
      every place your faith to God-ward is spread
      abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing.
       9 For they themselves shew of us what manner of
      entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned
      to God from idols to serve the living and true
      10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he
      raised from the dead, even Jesus, which
      delivered us from the wrath to come. 1st Thessalonians chapter 2
