1 Thessalonians 1:6-8 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)
6 And you became followers of us and of the Lord and received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost,
7 so that you were examples to all believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.
8 For the word of the Lord has resounded from you - not only in Macedonia and in Achaia - but in all quarters. Your faith toward God has gone out, so that we need not say anything.
