1 Thessalonians 3:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

For which thing we suffered no longer, and it pleased to us to dwell alone at Athens; [For which thing we sustaining no longer, it pleased to us to dwell at Athens alone;]

and we sent Timothy, our brother [and sent Timothy, our brother], and minister of God in the evangel of Christ, to you to be confirmed, and to be taught for your faith,

that no man be moved in these tribulations. For [ye] yourselves know, that in this thing we be set [that in this thing we be put].

For when we were at you, we before-said to you, that we should suffer tribulations; as [and] it is done, and ye know.

Therefore I Paul, no longer abiding [not sustaining more], sent to know your faith, lest peradventure he that tempteth [shall] tempt you, and your travail be made vain [and our travail be made vain].

1 Thessalonians 3:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He tells them how greatly he was moved with joy when Timothy told him of their faith and love.

Therefore, since we could bear it no longer, it pleased us to remain at Athens alone, and we sent Timothy, our brother and minister of God, and our labour-fellow in the gospel of Christ, to strengthen you and to comfort you over your faith, so that no one would be shaken in these afflictions. For you yourselves know that we are even appointed to this. For indeed, when I was with you, I warned that we would suffer tribulation, even as it came to pass and as you know. For this reason, when I could no longer bear it, I sent to find out about your faith, lest perhaps the tempter had tempted you, and our labour had been bestowed in vain.

1 Thessalonians 3:1-5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 To show his affection towards them, he sendeth Timothy unto them: 6 He is so moved by the report of their prosperous state, 9 that he cannot give sufficient thanks, 11 and therefore he breaketh out into prayer.

Wherefore since we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to remain at Athens alone,

And have sent Timothy our brother and minister of God, and our labor fellow in the Gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you touching your faith,

That no man should be moved with these afflictions: [a]for ye yourselves know, that we are appointed thereunto.

For verily when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulations, even as it came to pass, and ye know it.

Even for this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent him that I might know of your faith, lest the tempter had tempted you in any sort, and that our labor had been in vain.


  1. 1 Thessalonians 3:3 The will of God, who calleth his on this condition, to bring them to glory by affliction is a most sure remedy against all affliction.
