1 Thessalonians 5:14-28 AMP
[14] We [earnestly] urge you, believers, admonish those who are out of line [the undisciplined, the unruly, the disorderly], encourage the timid [who lack spiritual courage], help the [spiritually] weak, be very patient with everyone [always controlling your temper]. [15] See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek that which is good for one another and for all people. [16] Rejoice always and delight in your faith; [17] be unceasing and persistent in prayer; [18] in every situation [no matter what the circumstances] be thankful and continually give thanks to God; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus. [19] Do not quench [subdue, or be unresponsive to the working and guidance of] the [Holy] Spirit. [20] Do not scorn or reject gifts of prophecy or prophecies [spoken revelations-words of instruction or exhortation or warning]. [21] But test all things carefully [so you can recognize what is good]. Hold firmly to that which is good. [22] Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it]. [23] Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [that is, separate you from profane and vulgar things, make you pure and whole and undamaged-consecrated to Him-set apart for His purpose]; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. [24] Faithful and absolutely trustworthy is He who is calling you [to Himself for your salvation], and He will do it [He will fulfill His call by making you holy, guarding you, watching over you, and protecting you as His own]. [25] Brothers and sisters, pray for us.
[26] Greet all the believers with a holy kiss [as brothers and sisters in God’s family].
[27] I solemnly charge you by the Lord to have this letter read before all the congregation. [28] The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
