1 Thessalonians 3:6-10 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

But now, when Timothy shall come to us from you, and tell to us your faith and charity, and that ye have good mind of us, ever desiring to see us, as we also you; [Now forsooth Timothy coming to us from you, and telling to us your faith and charity, and for ye have evermore good mind of us, desiring to see us, as we also you;]

therefore, brethren, we be comforted in you, in all our need and tribulation, by your faith.

For now we live, if ye stand in the Lord.

For what doing of thankings be we able to yield to God for you [For why what doing of thankings may we yield to God for you], in all joy, in which we joy for you before our Lord?

10 night and day more plenteously praying, that we see your face, and fulfill those things that fail to your faith [and fulfill those things that fail of your faith].

1 Thessalonians 3:6-10 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

But now lately Timothy has come from you to us, and told us about your faith and your love, and that you have good remembrance of us always, desiring to see us as we desire to see you. Therefore, brethren, we had consolation in you, in all our adversity and need, through your faith. For now we are alive, if you stand steadfast in the Lord. For what thanks we can render to God for you, for all the joy that we have on your account before our God, 10 while we pray very much night and day that we might see you personally, and might make up that which is lacking in your faith.

[a]But now lately when Timothy came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and love, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring to see us, as we also do you,

Therefore brethren, we had consolation in you, in all our affliction and necessity through your faith.

For now are we [b]alive, if ye stand fast in the Lord.

For what thanks can we recompense to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we rejoice for your sakes before our God,

10 Night and day, praying exceedingly, that we might see your face, and might [c]accomplish that which is lacking in your faith?

  1. 1 Thessalonians 3:6 Because they have hitherto gone so well forward, he exhorteth them again to make an end of the rest of the journey, seeing that therein also they shall do him their Apostle a great pleasure.
  2. 1 Thessalonians 3:8 For now you cannot otherwise think me safe and in good case, unless you go forward in religion and faith.
  3. 1 Thessalonians 3:10 Paul was constrained through the importunate dealing of the enemies to leave the building which he had scarce begun: And for that cause he had left Silas and Timothy in Macedonia, and when Timothy came to Athens to him, he sent him back again straightway. So that he desireth to see the Thessalonians, that he may thereby thoroughly accomplish their faith and religion, that was as yet imperfect.
