1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Thanksgiving for Their Faith. We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers, unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love and endurance in hope[a] of our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father,

Footnotes:

  1. 1:3 Faith…love…hope: this, along with 1 Thes 5:8, is the earliest mention in Christian literature of the three “theological virtues” (see 1 Cor 13:13). The order here stresses eschatological hope, in line with the letter’s emphasis on the Lord’s second, triumphal coming, or parousia (1 Thes 1:10; 2:12, 19; 3:13; 4:13–5:11; 5:23).
