THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE GLORIFIED IN YOU AND YOU IN HIM.
Paul, and Sylvanus, and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you towards each other, aboundeth:
So that we ourselves also glory in you in the churches of God, for your patience and faith, and in all your persecutions and tribulations, which you endure,
For an example of the just judgement of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer.
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would make you worthy of his vocation, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness and the work of faith in power;
That the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
