1:1 This letter is from Paul , Silas ,  *  and Timothy . We are writing to the church in Thessalonica , to you who belong to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ . May God give you grace and peace . 2 We always thank God for all of you and pray for you constantly . 3 As we pray to our God and Father about you , we think of your faithful work , your loving deeds , and the enduring hope you have because of our Lord Jesus Christ . 4 We know , dear brothers and sisters ,  *  that God loves you and has chosen you to be his own people . 5 For when we brought you the Good News , it was not only with words but also with power , for the Holy Spirit gave you full assurance  *  that what we said was true . And you know of our concern for you from the way we lived when we were with you . 6 So you received the message with joy from the Holy Spirit in spite of the severe suffering it brought you . In this way , you imitated both us and the Lord . 7 As a result , you have become an example to all the believers in Greece throughout both Macedonia and Achaia .  *  8 And now the word of the Lord is ringing out from you to people everywhere , even beyond Macedonia and Achaia , for wherever we go we find people telling us about your faith in God . We don’t need to tell them about it , 9 for they keep talking about the wonderful welcome you gave us and how you turned away from idols to serve the living and true God . 10 And they speak of how you are looking forward to the coming of God’s Son from heaven Jesus , whom God raised from the dead . He is the one who has rescued us from the terrors of the coming judgment . 1   Παῦλος , καὶ Σιλουανός , καὶ Τιμόθεος · τῇ ἐκκλησίᾳ Θεσσαλονικέων , ἐν θεῷ πατρὶ καὶ κυρίῳ Ἰησοῦ Χριστῷ · χάρις ὑμῖν καὶ εἰρήνη . 2   εὐχαριστοῦμεν τῷ θεῷ πάντοτε περὶ πάντων ὑμῶν μνείαν ποιούμενοι ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν ἡμῶν ἀδιαλείπτως · 3   μνημονεύοντες ὑμῶν τοῦ ἔργου τῆς πίστεως , καὶ τοῦ κόπου τῆς ἀγάπης , καὶ τῆς ὑπομονῆς τῆς ἐλπίδος τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ , ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν · 4   εἰδότες , ἀδελφοί , ἠγαπημένοι ὑπὸ τοῦ θεοῦ τὴν ἐκλογὴν ὑμῶν · 5   ὅτι τὸ εὐαγγέλιον ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐγενήθη εἰς ὑμᾶς , ἐν λόγῳ μόνον ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν δυνάμει , καὶ ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ καὶ πληροφορίᾳ πολλῇ · καθὼς οἴδατε οἷοι ἐγενήθημεν ὑμῖν δι᾽ ὑμᾶς . 6   καί , ὑμεῖς μιμηταὶ ἡμῶν ἐγενήθητε καὶ τοῦ κυρίου , δεξάμενοι τὸν λόγον ἐν θλίψει πολλῇ μετὰ χαρᾶς πνεύματος ἁγίου · 7   ὥστε , γενέσθαι ὑμᾶς τύπον πᾶσιν τοῖς πιστεύουσιν -- ἐν τῇ Μακεδονίᾳ καὶ ἐν τῇ Ἀχαί̈ᾳ . 8   ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν γὰρ ἐξήχηται λόγος τοῦ κυρίου , οὐ μόνον ἐν τῇ Μακεδονίᾳ καὶ Ἀχαί̈ᾳ , ἀλλ᾽ ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ πίστις ὑμῶν πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἐξελήλυθεν · ὥστε μὴ χρείαν ἔχειν ἡμᾶς λαλεῖν τι , 9   αὐτοὶ γὰρ περὶ ἡμῶν ἀπαγγέλλουσιν ὁποίαν εἴσοδον ἔσχομεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς καὶ πῶς ἐπεστρέψατε πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἀπὸ τῶν εἰδώλων δουλεύειν θεῷ ζῶντι καὶ ἀληθινῷ · 10   καὶ ἀναμένειν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῶν οὐρανῶν -- ὃν ἤγειρεν ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν · Ἰησοῦν τὸν ῥυόμενον ἡμᾶς ἐκ τῆς ὀργῆς τῆς ἐρχομένης .
