ጳውሎስና ስልዋኖስ ጢሞቴዎስም፥ በእግዚአብሔር በአባታችን በጌታ በኢየሱስ ክርስቶስም ወደምትሆን ወደ ተሰሎንቄ ሰዎች ቤተ ክርስቲያን፤
2
ከእግዚአብሔር ከአባታችን ከጌታ ከኢየሱስ ክርስቶስም ጸጋ ሰላምም ለእናንተ ይሁን።
3
ወንድሞች ሆይ፥ እምነታችሁ እጅግ ስለሚያድግ የሁላችሁም የእያንዳንዳችሁ ፍቅር እርስ በርሳችሁ ስለሚበዛ፥ ሁልጊዜ ስለ እናንተ እግዚአብሔርን እንደሚገባ ልናመሰግን ግድ አለብን፤
4
ስለዚህ በምትታገሱበት በስደታችሁና በመከራችሁ ሁሉ ከመጽናታችሁና ከእምነታችሁ የተነሣ በእግዚአብሔር አብያተ ክርስቲያናት ስለ እናንተ ራሳችን እንመካለን።
5
ስለ እርሱ ደግሞ መከራ ለምትቀበሉለት ለእግዚአብሔር መንግሥት የምትበቁ ሆናችሁ ትቈጠሩ ዘንድ፥ ይህ የእግዚአብሔር ቅን ፍርድ ምልክት ነው።
6-7
ጌታ ኢየሱስ ከሥልጣኑ መላእክት ጋር ከሰማይ በእሳት ነበልባል ሲገለጥ፥ መከራን ለሚያሳዩአችሁ መከራን፥ መከራንም ለምትቀበሉ ከእኛ ጋር ዕረፍትን ብድራት አድርጎ እንዲመልስ በእግዚአብሔር ፊት በእርግጥ ጽድቅ ነውና።
8
እግዚአብሔርን የማያውቁትን፥ ለጌታችንም ለኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ወንጌል የማይታዘዙትን ይበቀላል፤
9-10
በዚያም ቀን በቅዱሳኑ ሊከብር፥ ምስክርነታችንንም አምናችኋልና በሚያምኑት ሁሉ ዘንድ ሊገረም ሲመጣ፥ ከጌታ ፊት ከኃይሉም ክብር ርቀው በዘላለም ጥፋት ይቀጣሉ።
11-12
ስለዚህም ደግሞ እንደ አምላካችን እንደ ጌታም እንደ ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ጸጋ፥ የጌታችን የኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ስም በእናንተ ዘንድ ሊከብር እናንተም በእርሱ ዘንድ ልትከብሩ፥ አምላካችን ለመጥራቱ የምትበቁ አድርጎ ይቈጥራችሁ ዘንድ፥ የበጎነትንም ፈቃድ ሁሉ የእምነትንም ሥራ በኃይል ይፈጽም ዘንድ ስለ እናንተ ሁልጊዜ እንጸልያለን።

Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the assembly of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3
We are bound to always give thanks to God for you, brothers, even as it is appropriate, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of each and every one of you towards one another abounds;
4
so that we ourselves boast about you in the assemblies of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions which you endure.
5
This is an obvious sign of the righteous judgment of God, to the end that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God, for which you also suffer.
6
Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay affliction to those who afflict you,
7
and to give relief to you who are afflicted with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire,
8
giving vengeance to those who don''t know God, and to those who don''t obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus,
9
who will pay the penalty: eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might,
10
when he comes to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired among all those who have believed (because our testimony to you was believed) in that day.
11
To this end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire of goodness and work of faith, with power;
12
that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
