Colossians 4:13  1 Thessalonians 2:7

13 For I testify of him that he labors much for you and for those in aLaodicea and for those in Hierapolis.

14 aLuke, the beloved physician, greets you, as well as bDemas.

15 Greet the brothers in aLaodicea, as well as Nymphas and the 1church, which is in 2his bhouse.

16 And when this letter is aread among you, cause that it be read in the church of the bLaodiceans also, and that you also read the one from Laodicea.

17 And say to aArchippus, Take heed to the bministry which you have received in the Lord, that you fulfill it.

18 The greeting in amy own hand — Paul. bRemember my cbonds. dGrace be with you.



1 Paul and aSilvanus and bTimothy to the 1cchurch of the 2Thessalonians in 3God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: dGrace to you and peace.

2 We athank God always concerning all of you, making bmention of you in our prayers,

3 Remembering unceasingly your 1work of 2afaith and 3labor of blove and 4endurance of chope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father;

4 Knowing, brothers, abeloved of God, your 1bselection;

5 For our agospel did not come to you in word only, but also in bpower and in the cHoly Spirit and in much assurance, even as you know 1dwhat kind of men we were among you for your sake.

6 And you became 1aimitators of us and of the Lord, having received the 2word in much affliction with bjoy of the cHoly Spirit,

7 So that you became a 1apattern to all those who believe in bMacedonia and in cAchaia.

8 For from you the word of the Lord has sounded out; not only in Macedonia and in Achaia, but in every place, your 1afaith toward God has gone out, so that we have no need of saying anything.

9 For they themselves report concerning us 1what kind of entrance we had toward you and how you 2aturned to God from the bidols to 3cserve a 4dliving and etrue God

10 And 1aawait His Son from the bheavens, whom He craised from the dead, Jesus, who ddelivers us from the 2ewrath which is coming.


1 For you yourselves know, brothers, our 1entrance toward you, that it has not been ain vain.

2 But having suffered previously and having been outrageously treated, even as you know, in 1aPhilippi, we were bbold 2in our God to speak to you the gospel of God in much cstruggle.

3 For our aexhortation is not out of 1bdeception nor out of cuncleanness nor in dguile;

4 But even as we have been 1aapproved by God to be bentrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as cpleasing men but God, who dproves our hearts.

5 For neither were we found at any time with aflattering speech, even as you know, nor with a 1pretext for bcovetousness; God is cwitness.

6 Nor did we 1seek aglory from men, neither from you nor from others, though we could have 2stood on our authority as bapostles of Christ.

7 But we were agentle in your midst, as a 1bnursing mother would 2ccherish her own dchildren.
