We, Paul, Silas, and Timothy, are sending this letter to the congregation of God's people in Thessalonica. We pray that God will continue to bless you with his kindness and inner peace.
God will judge all people justly. Specifically, he will publicly declare that you are worthy to enter that place where he will rule his people forever.
We are praying very frequently for you that God will consider you worthy to receive that to which he summoned you.
This man will be revealed by God when he who is now preventing him from being revealed will have been removed by God.
We pray that our Lord Jesus Christ himself will encourage you and cause you to continue doing and speaking what is good.
Our Lord Jesus will cause you to continue to be steadfast and he will protect you from the evil one.
We command those fellow believers who are not working to support themselves by settling down and working.
Publicly identify any fellow believer who does not obey what we have written in this letter and do not associate with him.
In closing, I pray that our Lord Jesus will continue to bless you all. I, Paul, am greeting you and I am writing this myself in order that you may know that it is I who have sent this letter.
