The King James Version Bible

1 Thessalonians 3:5-11

  1. For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.

  2. But now when Timotheus came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you:

  3. Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:

  4. For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.

  5. For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;

  6. Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

  7. Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.
