1ከጳውሎስ፣ ከሲላስና1፥1 ግሪኩ ስሉያኖስ ይላል ከጢሞቴዎስ፤

የእግዚአብሔር አብና የጌታ የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ለሆኑት ለተሰሎንቄ ሰዎች ቤተ ክርስቲያን፤

ስለ ተሰሎንቄ ሰዎች እምነት የቀረበ ምስጋና

2በጸሎታችን እያስታወስናችሁ ሁል ጊዜ እግዚአብሔርን ስለ ሁላችሁ እናመሰግናለን። 3ከእምነት የሆነውን ሥራችሁን፣ ከፍቅር የመነጨውን ድካማችሁንና በጌታችን በኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ባላችሁ ተስፋ የተገኘውን ጽናታችሁን በአምላካችንና በአባታችን ፊት ዘወትር እናስባለን።

4በእግዚአብሔር የተወደዳችሁ ወንድሞች ሆይ፤ እርሱ እንደ መረጣችሁ እናውቃለን፤ 5ምክንያቱም ወንጌላችን ወደ እናንተ የመጣው በኀይልና በመንፈስ ቅዱስ በብዙም መረዳት እንጂ በቃል ብቻ አይደለም። ደግሞ ስለ እናንተ ስንል በመካከላችሁ እንዴት እንደኖርን ታውቃላችሁ። 6እናንተ እኛንና ጌታን መስላችኋል፤ ምንም እንኳ ብርቱ መከራ ቢደርስባችሁም ቃሉን በመንፈስ ቅዱስ ደስታ ተቀብላችኋል። 7ከዚህም የተነሣ በመቄዶንያና በአካይያ ለሚገኙ ምእመናን መልካም ምሳሌ ሆናችኋል። 8የጌታ ቃል ከእናንተ ወጥቶ በመቄዶንያና በአካይያ መሰማቱ ብቻ ሳይሆን በእግዚአብሔር ያላችሁ እምነት በሁሉ ቦታ ታውቆአል፤ ስለዚህ እኛ በዚህ ጒዳይ ላይ ምንም መናገር አያስፈልገንም፤ 9በእንዴት ያለ አቀባበል እንደ ተቀበላችሁንና ሕያውና እውነተኛ የሆነውን አምላክ ለማገልገል ከጣዖታት ወደ እግዚአብሔር እንዴት እንደ ተመለሳችሁ እነርሱ ራሳቸው ይናገራሉ፤ 10ደግሞም ከሙታን ያስነሣውንና ከሰማይ የሚመጣውን ልጁን፣ ከሚመጣውም ቍጣ የሚያድነንን ኢየሱስን እንዴት እንደምትጠባበቁ ይናገራሉ።

1 Thessalonians 1:1-10

1I, Paul, am writing this letter. Silas and Timothy join me in writing.

We are sending this letter to you, the members of the church in Thessalonica. You belong to God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

May grace and peace be given to you.

Paul Gives Thanks for the Thessalonians’ Faith

2We always thank God for all of you. We keep on praying for you. 3We remember you when we pray to our God and Father. Your work is produced by your faith. Your service is the result of your love. Your strength to continue comes from your hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.

4Brothers and sisters, you are loved by God. We know that he has chosen you. 5Our good news didn’t come to you only in words. It came with power. It came with the Holy Spirit’s help. He gave us complete faith in what we were preaching. You know how we lived among you for your good. 6We and the Lord were your examples. You followed us. You welcomed our message even when you were suffering terribly. You welcomed it with the joy the Holy Spirit gives. 7So you became a model to all the believers in the lands of Macedonia and Achaia. 8The Lord’s message rang out from you. That was true not only in Macedonia and Achaia. Your faith in God has also become known everywhere. So we don’t have to say anything about it. 9The believers themselves report the kind of welcome you gave us. They tell about how you turned away from statues of gods. And you turned to serve the living and true God. 10They tell about how you are waiting for his Son to come from heaven. God raised him from the dead. He is Jesus. He saves us from God’s anger, and his anger is sure to come.
