15 [d]Who both killed the Lord Jesus and their own Prophets, and have persecuted us away, [e]and God they please not, and are contrary to [f]all men,
16 And forbid us to preach unto the Gentiles, that they might be saved, to [g]fulfill their sins always: for the [h]wrath of God is come on them to the utmost.
1 Thessalonians 2:14He confirmeth them in their afflictions which they suffered of their own people, because they were afflicted of their own countrymen: which came as well (saith he) to the Churches of the Jews, as to them: and therefore they ought to take it in good part.
1 Thessalonians 2:15He preventeth an offense which might be taken, for that the Jews especially above all others persecuted the Gospel. That is no new thing, sayeth he, seeing they slew Christ himself and his Prophets, and have banished me also.
1 Thessalonians 2:15He foretelleth the utter destruction of the Jews, lest any man should be moved by their rebellion.
1 Thessalonians 2:15For the Jews would neither enter into the kingdom of God themselves, nor suffer others to enter in.
1 Thessalonians 2:16Until the wickedness of theirs which they have by inheritance as it were of their fathers, be grown so great that the measure of their iniquity being filled, God may come forth to wrath.
1 Thessalonians 2:16The judgments of God being angry, which indeed appeared shortly after in the destruction of the city of Jerusalem, whither many resorted even out of divers provinces, when it was besieged.
