1 Περὶ δὲ τῶν χρόνων καὶ τῶν καιρῶν, ἀδελφοί, οὐ χρείαν ἔχετε ὑμῖν γράφεσθαι, 2 αὐτοὶ γὰρ ἀκριβῶς οἴδατε ὅτι ἡμέρα κυρίου ὡς κλέπτης ἐν νυκτὶ οὕτως ἔρχεται. 3 ὅταν λέγωσιν, εἰρήνη καὶ ἀσφάλεια, τότε αἰφνίδιος αὐτοῖς ἐφίσταται ὄλεθρος ὥσπερ ἡ ὠδὶν τῇ ἐν γαστρὶ ἐχούσῃ, καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐκφύγωσιν. 4 ὑμεῖς δέ, ἀδελφοί, οὐκ ἐστὲ ἐν σκότει, ἵνα ἡ ἡμέρα ὑμᾶς ὡς κλέπτης καταλάβῃ, 5 πάντες γὰρ ὑμεῖς υἱοὶ φωτός ἐστε καὶ υἱοὶ ἡμέρας. οὐκ ἐσμὲν νυκτὸς οὐδὲ σκότους: 6 ἄρα οὖν μὴ καθεύδωμεν ὡς οἱ λοιποί, ἀλλὰ γρηγορῶμεν καὶ νήφωμεν. 7 οἱ γὰρ καθεύδοντες νυκτὸς καθεύδουσιν, καὶ οἱ μεθυσκόμενοι νυκτὸς μεθύουσιν: 8 ἡμεῖς δὲ ἡμέρας ὄντες νήφωμεν, ἐνδυσάμενοι θώρακα πίστεως καὶ ἀγάπης καὶ περικεφαλαίαν ἐλπίδα σωτηρίας: 9 ὅτι οὐκ ἔθετο ἡμᾶς ὁ θεὸς εἰς ὀργὴν ἀλλὰ εἰς περιποίησιν σωτηρίας διὰ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, 10 τοῦ ἀποθανόντος ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν ἵνα εἴτε γρηγορῶμεν εἴτε καθεύδωμεν ἅμα σὺν αὐτῷ ζήσωμεν. 11 διὸ παρακαλεῖτε ἀλλήλους καὶ οἰκοδομεῖτε εἷς τὸν ἕνα, καθὼς καὶ ποιεῖτε. 1 There is no need, brethren, to write to you about the times and the seasons of all this; 2 you are keeping it clearly in mind, without being told, that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. 3 It is just when men are saying, All quiet, all safe, that doom will fall upon them suddenly, like the pangs that come to a woman in travail, and there will be no escape from it. 4 Whereas you, brethren, are not living in the darkness, for the day to take you by surprise, like a thief; 5 no, you are all born to the light, born to the day; we do not belong to the night and its darkness. 6 We must not sleep on, then, like the rest of the world, we must watch and keep sober; 7 night is the sleeper’s time for sleeping, the drunkard’s time for drinking; 8 we must keep sober, like men of the daylight. We must put on our breastplate, the breastplate of faith and love, our helmet, which is the hope of salvation. 9 God has not destined us for vengeance; he means us to win salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who has died for our sakes, that we, waking or sleeping, may find life with him. 11 Go on, then, encouraging one another and building up one another’s faith. 1 De temporibus autem, et momentis, fratres, non indigetis ut scribamus vobis. 2 Ipsi enim diligenter scitis quia dies Domini, sicut fur in nocte, ita veniet: 3 cum enim dixerint: Pax et securitas: tunc repentinus eis superveniet interitus, sicut dolor in utero habenti, et non effugient. 4 Vos autem, fratres, non estis in tenebris, ut vos die illa tamquam fur comprehendat: 5 omnes enim vos filii lucis estis, et filii diei: non sumus noctis, neque tenebrarum. 6 Igitur non dormiamus sicut et ceteri, sed vigilemus, et sobrii simus. 7 Qui enim dormiunt, nocte dormiunt: et qui ebrii sunt, nocte ebrii sunt. 8 Nos autem, qui diei sumus, sobrii simus, induti loricam fidei et caritatis, et galeam spem salutis: 9 quoniam non posuit nos Deus in iram, sed in acquisitionem salutis per Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum, 10 qui mortuus est pro nobis: ut sive vigilemus, sive dormiamus, simul cum illo vivamus. 11 Propter quod consolamini invicem, et ædificate alterutrum, sicut et facitis.
12 Ἐρωτῶμεν δὲ ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, εἰδέναι τοὺς κοπιῶντας ἐν ὑμῖν καὶ προϊσταμένους ὑμῶν ἐν κυρίῳ καὶ νουθετοῦντας ὑμᾶς, 13 καὶ ἡγεῖσθαι αὐτοὺς ὑπερεκπερισσοῦ ἐν ἀγάπῃ διὰ τὸ ἔργον αὐτῶν. εἰρηνεύετε ἐν ἑαυτοῖς 14 παρακαλοῦμεν δὲ ὑμᾶς, ἀδελφοί, νουθετεῖτε τοὺς ἀτάκτους, παραμυθεῖσθε τοὺς ὀλιγοψύχους, ἀντέχεσθε τῶν ἀσθενῶν, μακροθυμεῖτε πρὸς πάντας. 15 ὁρᾶτε μή τις κακὸν ἀντὶ κακοῦ τινι ἀποδῷ, ἀλλὰ πάντοτε τὸ ἀγαθὸν διώκετε [καὶ] εἰς ἀλλήλους καὶ εἰς πάντας. 16 πάντοτε χαίρετε, 17 ἀδιαλείπτως προσεύχεσθε, 18 ἐν παντὶ εὐχαριστεῖτε: τοῦτο γὰρ θέλημα θεοῦ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ εἰς ὑμᾶς. 19 τὸ πνεῦμα μὴ σβέννυτε, 20 προφητείας μὴ ἐξουθενεῖτε: 21 πάντα δὲ δοκιμάζετε, τὸ καλὸν κατέχετε, 22 ἀπὸ παντὸς εἴδους πονηροῦ ἀπέχεσθε. 23 Αὐτὸς δὲ ὁ θεὸς τῆς εἰρήνης ἁγιάσαι ὑμᾶς ὁλοτελεῖς, καὶ ὁλόκληρον ὑμῶν τὸ πνεῦμα καὶ ἡ ψυχὴ καὶ τὸ σῶμα ἀμέμπτως ἐν τῇ παρουσίᾳ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τηρηθείη. 24 πιστὸς ὁ καλῶν ὑμᾶς, ὃς καὶ ποιήσει. 25 ἀδελφοί, προσεύχεσθε [καὶ] περὶ ἡμῶν. 26 ἀσπάσασθε τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς πάντας ἐν φιλήματι ἁγίῳ. 27 ἐνορκίζω ὑμᾶς τὸν κύριον ἀναγνωσθῆναι τὴν ἐπιστολὴν πᾶσιν τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς. 28 Ἡ χάρις τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ μεθ' ὑμῶν. 12 Brethren, we would ask you to pay deference to those who work among you, those who have charge of you in the Lord, and give you directions; 13 make it a rule of charity to hold them in special esteem, in honour of the duty they perform, and maintain unity with them.[1] 14 And, brethren, let us make this appeal to you; warn the vagabonds, encourage the faint-hearted, support the waverers, be patient towards all. 15 See to it that nobody repays injury with injury; you must aim always at what is best, for one another and for all around you.[2] 16 Joy be with you always. 17 Never cease praying. 18 Give thanks upon all occasions; this is what God expects of you all in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not stifle the utterances of the Spirit, 20 do not hold prophecy in low esteem; 21 and yet you must scrutinize it all carefully, retaining only what is good, 22 and rejecting all that has a look of evil about it.[3] 23 So may the God of peace sanctify you wholly, keep spirit and soul and body unimpaired, to greet the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ without reproach. 24 The God who called you is true to his promise; he will not fail you. 25 Brethren, pray for us. 26 Greet all the brethren with the kiss of saints. 27 I adjure you in the Lord’s name to see that this letter is read out to all our holy brethren. 28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, Amen. 12 Rogamus autem vos, fratres, ut noveritis eos qui laborant inter vos, et præsunt vobis in Domino, et monent vos, 13 ut habeatis illos abundantius in caritate propter opus illorum: pacem habete cum eis. 14 Rogamus autem vos, fratres, corripite inquietos, consolamini pusillanimes, suscipite infirmos, patientes estote ad omnes. 15 Videte ne quis malum pro malo alicui reddat: sed semper quod bonum est sectamini in invicem, et in omnes. 16 Semper gaudete. 17 Sine intermissione orate. 18 In omnibus gratias agite: hæc est enim voluntas Dei in Christo Jesu in omnibus vobis. 19 Spiritum nolite extinguere. 20 Prophetias nolite spernere. 21 Omnia autem probate: quod bonum est tenete. 22 Ab omni specie mala abstinete vos. 23 Ipse autem Deus pacis sanctificet vos per omnia: ut integer spiritus vester, et anima, et corpus sine querela in adventu Domini nostri Jesu Christi servetur. 24 Fidelis est, qui vocavit vos: qui etiam faciet. 25 Fratres, orate pro nobis. 26 Salutate fratres omnes in osculo sancto. 27 Adjuro vos per Dominum ut legatur epistola hæc omnibus sanctis fratribus. 28 Gratia Domini nostri Jesu Christi vobiscum. Amen.
