1 Thessalonians 1 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, to the church of Thessalonians, in God the Father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ, grace and peace to you [grace to you, and peace].

We do thankings to God evermore for all you, and we make mind of you in our prayers without ceasing [making mind of you in our prayers without ceasing];

having mind of the work of your faith, and travail, and charity, and abiding of the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ [mindful of your work of faith, and travail, and charity, and sustaining of the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ], before God and our Father.

Ye beloved brethren of God, we witting your choosing, [We witting, ye loved brethren of God, your choosing,]

for our gospel was not at you in word only, but also in virtue, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much plenty; as ye know, which we were among you for you [as ye know, what manner men we were in you for you];

and ye be made followers of us, and of the Lord, receiving the word in much tribulation, with joy of the Holy Ghost;

so that ye be made ensample to all men that believe [so that ye be made form, or example, to all men believing], in Macedonia and in Achaia.

For of you the word of the Lord is published, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith that is to God, in each place is gone forth[a]; so that it is not need to us to speak any thing.

For they show of you, what manner entry we had to you, and how ye be converted to God from maumets [and how ye be converted to God from simulacra], to serve to the living God and very;

10 and to abide his Son from heavens, whom he raised from death, the Lord Jesus, that delivered us from wrath to coming. [and for to abide his son from heavens, whom he raised from dead, Jesus, that delivered us from wrath to come.]

1 Thessalonians 1 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

He thanks God for them, that they are so steadfast in faith & good works, and receive the gospel with such earnestness.  

Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy.

To the congregation of the Thessalonians in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Grace be with you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

We give God thanks always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers without ceasing, and call to remembrance your work in the faith and labour in love, and perseverance in the hope of our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of God our Father, because we know, brethren beloved of God, that you are elect. For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, and also in the Holy Spirit – and in much confidence, as you know how we conducted ourselves among you for your sakes.

And you became followers of us and of the Lord, and received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you were an example to all who believe in Macedonia and Achaia. For the word of the Lord sounded out from you – not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but the faith that you have in God went abroad in all quarters, so greatly that it is not necessary for us to say anything at all. For people themselves speak of you: what manner of entry we had in to you, and how you turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God, 10 and to look for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from death; I mean Jesus, who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 1 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

The First Epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians

1 He therefore beginneth with thanksgiving, 4 to put them in mind that whatsoever was praiseworthy in them, it came of God’s goodness: 7 and that they are ensamples unto others.

Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, unto the Church of the Thessalonians, which is in God the Father, and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be with you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

[a]We give God thanks always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers.

[b]Without ceasing, remembering your effectual faith, and diligent love, and the patience of your hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God, even our Father,

Knowing, beloved brethren, that ye are [c]elect of God.

[d]For our Gospel was not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the holy Ghost, and in [e]much assurance, as ye know after what manner we were among you for your sakes.

[f]And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, and received the word in much affliction, with [g]joy of the holy Ghost,

So that ye were as ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and in Achaia.

For from you sounded out the word of the Lord, not in Macedonia and in Achaia only: but your faith also which is toward God, spread abroad in all quarters, that we need not to speak anything.

For [h]they themselves show of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, [i]and how ye turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God.

10 And to look for his son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus which delivereth us from [j]that wrath to come.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Thessalonians 1:2 An example of a right Christian rejoicing:whereby also we learn, that such as have great gifts in them are in two sorts bridled, to wit, if they consider that they have received all from God, and that continuance must be desired at his hands, whereunto also the whole Epistle exhorteth the Thessalonians.
  2. 1 Thessalonians 1:3 He commendeth them for three special gifts, effectual faith, continual love, and patient hope: to the end they might be ashamed being endued with such excellent gifts, not to continue in God’s election.
  3. 1 Thessalonians 1:4 Word for word, that your election is of God.
  4. 1 Thessalonians 1:5 Another reason why they ought in no wise start back but continue to the end, because they cannot doubt of his doctrine which hath been so many ways confirmed unto them, even from heaven as they themselves did well know.
  5. 1 Thessalonians 1:5 Paul showeth by two things, that there followed very great fruits of his preaching, to wit, by these gifts of the holy Ghost, and that certain assurance which was thoroughly settled in their minds, as appeared by their willing bearing of the cross.
  6. 1 Thessalonians 1:6 Another reason: Because even to that day, they embraced the Gospel with great cheerfulness, insomuch that they were an example to all their neighbors: so that it should be more shame for them to faint in the mid-race.
  7. 1 Thessalonians 1:6 With joy which cometh from the holy Ghost.
  8. 1 Thessalonians 1:9 All the believers.
  9. 1 Thessalonians 1:9 It is no true conversion to forsake idols, unless a man therewithall worship the true and living God in Christ the only redeemer.
  10. 1 Thessalonians 1:10 This word (That) is not put here without cause: and by (wrath) is meant that revenge and punishment, wherewith the Lord will judge the world at length in his terrible wrath.

We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father; knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
