Vjera solunskih vjernika

2Uvijek zahvaljujemo Bogu za vas i neprestano se za vas molimo. 3Uvijek se pred svojim Bogom Ocem sjećamo vaših djela vjere, vašeg truda iz ljubavi te vaše postojanosti nadahnute nadom u našega Gospodina Isusa Krista.

4Znamo, draga braćo i sestre, da vas je Bog izabrao za svoje. 5Jer evanđelje koje smo vam donijeli nije se očitovalo samo u riječi, već i u sili Svetoga Duha, s potpunim i dubokim uvjerenjem u njegovu istinitost. A znate i da smo mi među vama živjeli kao dokaz istinitosti naše poruke. 6Primili ste Riječ od Svetoga Duha s radošću unatoč velikim patnjama. U tomu ste slijedili nas i Gospodina. 7Postali ste tako uzorom svim vjernicima u Makedoniji i u Ahaji. 8Ne samo da je riječ Gospodnja od vas odjeknula po Makedoniji i po Ahaji, nego se o vašoj vjeri u Boga tako pročulo da o tomu više ljudima ne treba ni govoriti. 9Sami pripovijedaju kako ste nas lijepo primili i kako ste se od idola obratili istinskome i živome Bogu da mu služite 10te kako iščekujete da s neba ponovno dođe njegov Sin Isus, kojega je uskrisio od mrtvih i koji će nas izbaviti od strašnoga Božjega gnjeva koji je pred nama.

King James Version

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

1Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; 3Remembering 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; 4Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God. 5For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake. 6And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: 7So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. 8For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. 9For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; 10And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
