1 Thessalonians 1

2Εὐχαριστοῦμεν τῷ θεῷ παντοτε περὶ παντων ὑμῶν, μνειαν ὑμῶν ποιουμενοι ἐπὶ τῶν προσευχῶν ἡμῶν, 3ἀδιαλείπτως μνημονευοντες ὑμῶν τοῦ ἔργου τῆς πιστεως, καὶ τοῦ κοπου τῆς ἀγάπης, καὶ τῆς ὑπομονῆς τῆς ἐλπίδος τοῦ κυριου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ χριστοῦ, ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν: 4εἰδότες, ἀδελφοὶ ἠγαπημένοι ὑπὸ θεοῦ, τὴν ἐκλογὴν ὑμῶν: 5ὅτι τὸ εὐαγγέλιον ἡμῶν οὐκ ἐγενήθη εἰς ὑμᾶς ἐν λόγῳ μονον, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν δυναμει, καὶ ἐν πνευματι ἁγίῳ, καὶ ἐν πληροφορίᾳ πολλῇ, καθὼς οἴδατε οἷοι ἐγενήθημεν ἐν ὑμῖν δι᾽ ὑμᾶς. 6Καὶ ὑμεῖς μιμηταὶ ἡμῶν ἐγενήθητε καὶ τοῦ κυριου, δεξαμενοι τὸν λογον ἐν θλιψει πολλῇ μετὰ χαρᾶς πνευματος ἁγίου, 7ὥστε γενεσθαι ὑμᾶς τυπους πᾶσιν τοῖς πιστευουσιν ἐν τῇ Μακεδονίᾳ καὶ τῇ Ἀχαΐᾳ. 8Ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν γὰρ ἐξήχηται λογος τοῦ κυριου οὐ μονον ἐν τῇ Μακεδονίᾳ καὶ ἐν τῇ Ἀχαΐᾳ, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ πιστις ὑμῶν πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἐξελήλυθεν, ὥστε μὴ χρειαν ἡμᾶς ἔχειν λαλεῖν τι. 9Αὐτοὶ γὰρ περὶ ἡμῶν ἀπαγγέλλουσιν ὁποίαν εἴσοδον ἔσχομεν πρὸς ὑμᾶς, καὶ πῶς ἐπεστρέψατε πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἀπὸ τῶν εἰδώλων, δουλευειν θεῷ ζῶντι καὶ ἀληθινῷ, 10καὶ ἀναμένειν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῶν οὐρανῶν, ὃν ἤγειρεν ἐκ τῶν νεκρῶν, Ἰησοῦν, τὸν ῥυόμενον ἡμᾶς ἀπὸ τῆς ὀργῆς τῆς ἐρχομένης.
