TH1 2:9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for
labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of
you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.
TH1 2:10 Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and
unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe:
TH1 2:11 As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one
of you, as a father doth his children,
TH1 2:12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his
kingdom and glory.
TH1 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because,
when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it
