The King James Version Bible

1 Thessalonians 4:9-13

  1. But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

  2. And indeed ye do it toward all the brethren which are in all Macedonia: but we beseech you, brethren, that ye increase more and more;

  3. And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

  4. That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

  5. But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
