帖撒羅尼迦前書5 (CUV)
1弟兄們,論到時候、日期,不用寫信給你們;
2因為你們自己明明曉得,主的日子來到,好像夜間的賊一樣。
3人正說平安穩妥的時候,災禍忽然臨到他們,如同產難臨到懷胎的婦人一樣。他們絕不能逃脫。
4弟兄們,你們卻不在黑暗裡,叫那日子臨到你們像賊一樣。
5你們都是光明之子,都是白晝之子。我們不是屬黑夜的,也不是屬幽暗的。
6所以我們不要睡覺像別人一樣,總要儆醒謹守。
7因為睡了的人是在夜間睡,醉了的人是在夜間醉。
8但我們既然屬乎白晝,就應當謹守,把信和愛當作護心鏡遮胸,把得救的盼望當作頭盔戴上。
9因為神不是預定我們受刑,乃是預定我們藉著我們主耶穌基督得救。
10他替我們死,叫我們無論醒著、睡著,都與他同活。
11所以,你們該彼此勸慰,互相建立,正如你們素常所行的。
12弟兄們,我們勸你們敬重那在你們中間勞苦的人,就是在主裡面治理你們、勸戒你們的。
13又因他們所做的工,用愛心格外尊重他們。你們也要彼此和睦。
14我們又勸弟兄們,要警戒不守規矩的人,勉勵灰心的人,扶助軟弱的人,也要向眾人忍耐。
15你們要謹慎,無論是誰都不可以惡報惡;或是彼此相待,或是待眾人,常要追求良善。
16要常常喜樂,
17不住的禱告,
18凡事謝恩;因為這是神在基督耶穌裡向你們所定的旨意。
19不要銷滅聖靈的感動;
20不要藐視先知的講論。
21但要凡事察驗,善美的要持守,
22各樣的惡事要禁戒不做。
23願賜平安的神親自使你們全然成聖!又願你們的靈與魂與身子得蒙保守,在我主耶穌基督降臨的時候,完全無可指摘!
24那召你們的本是信實的,他必成就這事。
25請弟兄們為我們禱告。
26與眾弟兄親嘴問安,務要聖潔。
27我指著主囑咐你們,要把這信念給眾弟兄聽。
28願我主耶穌基督的恩常與你們同在!
1 Thessalonians 5 (ESV)
The Day of the Lord

5 Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers,[a] you have no need to have anything written to you. 2 For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. 5 For you are all children[b] of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. 6 So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Final Instructions and Benediction

12 We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle,[c] encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. 15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil.
23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.
25 Brothers, pray for us.
26 Greet all the brothers with a holy kiss.
27 I put you under oath before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
