Greeting. 1 a Acts 15, 40; 16, 1–3.19; 17, 14–15; 2 Thes 1, 1–2 . * Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: grace to you and peace.

Thanksgiving for Their Faith. 2 b 2 Thes 1, 3 . We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers, unceasingly 3 *calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love and endurance in hope of our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father, 4 c 2 Thes 2, 13 . knowing, brothers loved by God, how you were chosen. 5 d Acts 13, 52; 17, 1–9 . For our gospel did not come to you in word alone, but also in power and in the holy Spirit and [with] much conviction. You know what sort of people we were [among] you for your sake. 6 * And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, receiving the word in great affliction, with joy from the holy Spirit, 7 e 2 Thes 1, 4; 1 Cor 4, 16; 11, 1 / 2, 14; Phil 3, 17 . so that you became a model for all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. 8 f Rom 1, 8. 1–9 . For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth not only in Macedonia and [in] Achaia, but in every place your faith in God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything. 9 g Acts 14, 15; Gal 4, 8 / 4, 5 . For they themselves openly declare about us what sort of reception we had among you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God 10 h Rom 2, 1–16; 5, 9; 13, 4 / 5, 9 . and to await his Son from heaven, whom he raised from [the] dead, Jesus, who delivers us from the coming wrath.
