1 Thessalonians 4:9-13 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Now concerning love of the brothers and sisters,[a] you do not need to have anyone write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another; 10 and indeed you do love all the brothers and sisters[b] throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, beloved,[c] to do so more and more, 11 to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we directed you, 12 so that you may behave properly toward outsiders and be dependent on no one.

The Coming of the Lord

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters,[d] about those who have died,[e] so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope.
