4:1 Therefore, brethren, from henceforward we pray you, and beseech in the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us, how it behooveth you to go and to please God, so walk ye, that ye abound more. Furthermore we beseech you brethren, and exhort you in the lord Jesus, that ye increase more and more, even as ye have received of us, how ye ought to walk and to please God. And furthermore we beseech you, brethren, & exhort you in the Lord Jesus that ye increase more and more, as ye have received of us, how ye ought to walk, and to please God. Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Lord Jesus, that as ye have received of us, how ye ought to walk, and to please God, so ye would abound more and more.
4:2 For ye know what commandments I have given to you by the Lord Jesus. Ye remember what commandments we gave you in the name of the lord Jesus. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For ye know what commandments we gave you, by the Lord Jesus.
4:3 For this is the will of God, your holiness, that ye abstain you from fornication. For this is the will of god, which is your sanctifying, that ye should abstain from fornication, For this is the will of God even your sanctification, & that ye should abstain from fornication, For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
4:4 That each of you know how to wield his vessel in holiness, and honour; that every one of you should know how to keep his vessel in sanctifying and honour, That every one of you should know, how to possess his vessel in holiness & honour, That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour:
4:5 not in passion of lust, as heathen men that know not God. and not in the lust of concupiscence, as do the heathen, which know not god, And not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
4:6 And that no man over-go, neither deceive his brother, in chaffering. For the Lord is venger of all these things, as we before-said to you, and have witnessed. that no man go beyond, and defraud his brother in bargaining, because the lord is avenger of all such things: as we told you beforetime, and testified unto you. That no man oppress or defraud his brother in any matter: for the Lord is avenger of all such things, as we also have told you beforetime and testified. That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter, because that the Lord is the avenger of all such; as we also have forewarned you, and testified:
4:7 For God called not us into uncleanness, but into holiness. For god hath not called us unto uncleanness: but unto sanctifying. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.
4:8 Therefore he that despiseth these things, despiseth not man, but God, that also gave his Holy Spirit in us. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, which hath sent his holy spirit among you. He therefore that despiseth these things, despiseth not man, but God who hath even given you his holy Spirit. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.
4:9 But of the charity of brotherhood we had no need to write to you; ye yourselves have learned of God, that ye love together; But as touching brotherly love, ye need not that I write unto you. For ye are taught of god to love one another. But as touching brotherly love, ye need not that I write unto you: for ye are taught of God to love one another. But as touching brotherly love, ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another
4:10 and for ye do that into all brethren in all Macedonia. And, brethren, we pray you, that ye abound more; Yea and that thing verily ye do unto all brethren, which are throughout all Macedonia. We beseech you brethren that ye increase, more and more, Yea, & that thing verily ye do unto all the brethren, which are throughout all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more, And indeed ye do it towards all the brethren, which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more
4:11 and give work that ye be quiet, and do your need, and that ye work with your own hands, as we have commanded to you; and that ye study to be quiet, and to meddle with your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you: And that ye study to be quiet, and to meddle with your own business, & to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, (as we commanded you:)
4:12 and that ye wander honestly to them that be withoutforth, and that of no man’s ye desire any thing. that ye may behave yourselves honestly toward them that are without and that nothing be lacking unto you. That ye may behave yourselves honestly toward them that are without, & that nothing be lacking unto you. That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.
4:13 Forsooth, brethren, we will not you to unknow of men sleeping, that ye be not sorrowful, and others that have not hope. I would not brethren have you ignorant concerning them which are fallen asleep, that ye sorrow not as other do which have no hope I would not, brethren, have you ignorant concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not even as other which have no hope. But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
4:14 For if we believe, that Jesus was dead, and rose again, so and God shall lead with him them that slept by Jesus. For if we believe that Jesus died, and rose again: even so them also which sleep by Jesus, will god bring again with him. For if we believe that Jesus is dead, and is risen, even so them which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him. For if we believe that Jesus died, and rose again: even so them also which sleep in Jesus, will God bring with him
4:15 Soothly this thing we say to you in the word of the Lord, that we that live, that be residue in the coming of the Lord, shall not come before them that slept. And this say we unto you in the word of the lord, that we which live and are remaining in the coming of the lord, shall not come ere they, which sleep For this say we unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which live, & are remaining in the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which sleep. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, That we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, shall not prevent them which are asleep.
4:16 For the Lord himself shall come down from heaven, in the commanding, and in the voice of the archangel, and in the trump of God; and the dead men that be in Christ, shall rise again first. For the lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, and the voice of the archangel, and trump of God. And the dead in Christ shall arise first: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, & with the voice of the Archangel & with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
4:17 Afterward we that live, that be left, shall be snatched together with them in clouds, meeting Christ in the air; and so evermore we shall be with the Lord. then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds to meet the lord in the air. And so shall we ever be with the lord. Then shall we which live and remain, be caught up with them also in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: & so shall we ever be with the Lord. Then we which are alive, and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
4:18 Therefore comfort ye together in these words. Wherefore comfort yourselves one another with these words. Wherefore, comfort yourselves one another with these words. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.
