OUTLINE

1 Thessalonians 1
1:1

1:5

The Thessalonians are given to understand both how mindful of them Saint Paul
was at all time in thanksgiving, and prayer;

And also how well he was persuaded of the truth and sincerity of their faith and conversion to God.
1 Thessalonians 2
2:1

2:18

In what manner the gospel was brought and preached to the Thessalonians, and in
what sort also they received it.

A reason is rendered both why Paul was so long absent from them, and also why he was so desirous to see them.
1 Thessalonians 3
3:1

3:10

Saint Paul testifies his great love to the Thessalonians, partly by sending Timothy
unto them to strengthen and comfort them; partly by rejoicing in their well-doing;

And partly by praying for them, and desiring a safe coming unto them.
1 Thessalonians 4
4:1
4:6
4:9
4:11
4:13
4:17

He exhorts them to go forward in all manner of godliness;
To live holily and justly;
To love one another;
And quietly to follow their own business;
And last of all, to sorrow moderately for the dead.
And unto this last exhortation is annexed a brief description of the resurrection, and second coming of Christ to judgment.
1 Thessalonians 5
5:1
5:16
5:23

He proceeds in the former description of Christ's coming to judgment;
And gives divers precepts;
And so concludes the epistle.
