1About dates and times, my friends, there is no need to write to you,

2for you yourselves know perfectly well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night.

3While they are saying, “All is peaceful, all secure,” destruction is upon them, sudden as the pangs that come on a woman in childbirth; and there will be no escape.

4But you, friends, are not in the dark; the day will not come upon you like a thief.

5You are all children of light, children of day. We do not belong to night and darkness,

6and we must not sleep like the rest, but keep awake and sober.

7Sleepers sleep at night, and drunkards get drunk at night,

8but we, who belong to the daylight, must keep sober, armed with the breastplate of faith and love, and the hope of salvation for a helmet.

9God has not destined us for retribution, but for the full attainment of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

10He died for us so that awake or asleep we might live in company with him.

11Therefore encourage one another, build one another up -- as indeed you do.

Final instructions and greetings

12WE beg you, friends, to acknowledge those who are working so hard among you, and are your leaders and counsellors in the Lord's fellowship.

13Hold them in the highest esteem and affection for the work they do. Live at peace among yourselves.

14We urge you, friends, to rebuke the idle, encourage the faint-hearted, support the weak, and be patient with everyone.

15See to it that no one pays back wrong for wrong, but always aim at what is best for each other and for all.

16Always be joyful;

17pray continually;

18give thanks whatever happens; for this is what God wills for you in Christ Jesus.

19Do not stifle inspiration

20or despise prophetic utterances,

21but test them all; keep hold of what is good

22and avoid all forms of evil.

23May God himself, the God of peace, make you holy through and through, and keep you sound in spirit, soul, and body, free of any fault when our Lord Jesus Christ comes.

24He who calls you keeps faith; he will do it.

25Friends, pray for us also.

26Greet all our fellow-Christians with the kiss of peace.

27I adjure you by the Lord to have this letter read to them all.

28The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
