1 Thessalonians 3 ©
1 The apostle sheweth that out of his great care for the Thessalonians he had sent Timothy to comfort and strengthen them in the faith; 6 whose good report of them had been a great consolation to him in his distresses. 9 He testifieth his thankfulness to God, and earnest desire to see them; 11 praying God to guide him to them, and for their increase in love and holiness unto the end.
dThat no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that ewe are appointed thereunto.
For *verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; feven as it came to pass, and ye know.
To the end he may rstablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the scoming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
