1 Thessalonians 2:8  1 Thessalonians 3:6

8 1aYearning in this way over you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also 2bour own souls, because you became beloved to us.

9 For you remember, brothers, our labor and travail: While aworking night and day so as not to be bburdensome to any of you, we proclaimed to you the gospel of God.

10 You are witnesses, as well as aGod, how in a 1holy and righteous and blameless manner we conducted ourselves toward you who believe,

11 Just as you know 1how we were to each one of you, as a 2afather to his own bchildren, 3cexhorting you and consoling you and testifying,

12 So that you might awalk in a manner worthy of God, who 1bcalls you into His own 2ckingdom and 3dglory.

13 And because of this we also athank God unceasingly that when you received 1the word of God, which you heard 2from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but even as it truly is, the word of God, which also 3operates in you who believe.

14 For you, brothers, became 1aimitators of the bchurches of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus, for you also suffered the same things from your own countrymen, even as they also from the Jews,

15 Who both akilled the Lord Jesus and the bprophets and cdrove us out; and they are not pleasing to God and are contrary to all men,

16 In that they forbid us to speak to the Gentiles that they may be saved, so that they afill up their sins always. But wrath has come upon them to the 1uttermost.

17 But we, brothers, having been 1bereaved of you for 2a little while, in presence, anot in heart, were more abundantly 3eager with great bdesire to see your face.

18 Therefore we wanted to come to you, indeed I Paul, both once and again, yet 1Satan ahindered us.

19 For what is our ahope or bjoy or crown of cboasting before our Lord Jesus at His 1dcoming? Are not even you?

20 For you are our 1glory and joy.


1 Therefore when we could abear it no longer, we thought it good to be left in 1bAthens alone,

2 And we sent aTimothy, our brother and 1God’s fellow worker in the gospel of Christ, to bestablish and 2encourage you for the sake of your cfaith,

3 That no one would be 1shaken by these aafflictions; for you yourselves know that we are 2bappointed for this.

4 For even when we were with you, we 1told you beforehand that we are to be afflicted, even as it also came to pass and you know.

5 Because of this, when I also could abear it no longer, I sent to find out concerning your bfaith, lest perhaps the 1ctempter had tempted you and our labor would be 2din vain.

6 But aTimothy, having just come 1to us from you and announcing the good news to us of your bfaith and love and that you have kind cremembrance of us always and dlong to see us, just as we also you,
