1 Thessalonians 1:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
5 For our Gospel was not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the holy Ghost, and in much assurance, as ye know after what manner we were among you for your sakes.
6 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, and received the word in much affliction, with joy of the holy Ghost,
7 So that ye were as ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and in Achaia.

1 Thessalonians 1:5-7 New International Version (NIV)
5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. 6 You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit. 7 And so you became a model to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia.
