1 Thessalonians 2:20-3:8Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

20 For you are our glory and joy.

For which cause, forbearing no longer, we thought it good to remain at Athens alone:

And we sent Timothy, our brother, and the minister of God in the gospel of Christ, to confirm you and exhort you concerning your faith:

That no man should be moved in these tribulations: for yourselves know, that we are appointed thereunto.

For even when we were with you, we foretold you that we should suffer tribulations, as also it is come to pass, and you know.

For this cause also, I, forbearing no longer, sent to know your faith: lest perhaps he that tempteth should have tempted you, and our labour should be made vain.

But now when Timothy came to us from you, and related to us your faith and charity, and that you have a good remembrance of us always, desiring to see us as we also to see you;

Therefore we were comforted, brethren, in you, in all our necessity and tribulation, by your faith,

Because now we live, if you stand in the Lord.
