Kehillah in Thessalonika I 2:14-16 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
14 For you became imitators, Chaverim, of the kehillot Hashem in Moshiach Yehoshua which are in Yehudah, because you also were similarly persecuted by your own landslait, just as also they were by the ones in Yehudah,
15 Even the ones who caused the histalkus of [Moshiach] Adoneinu Yehoshua and killed the Nevi’im and persecuted us [Shlichim] severely. Indeed, they are not pleasing Hashem and are hostile to kol Bnei Adam,
16 By hindering us from speaking to the Goyim in order that the Goyim might find Yeshu’at Eloheinu. Thus they always make complete their peysha’im. So the charon af, the burning wrath, the furious retribution of Hashem has overtaken them at last.
