1Thessalonians 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.

1Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety.(the words usually of the deceivers 1, 2), then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape.

1Thessalonians 5:4 But you brethren are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief.

1Thessalonians 5:5 You are all the children of light and the children of the day. We are not of the night, nor of darkness.

1Thessalonians 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep as do others but let us watch.(be on the qui vive;.Mark 13:33-37).and be sober.(calm and collected in spirit).

1Thessalonians 5:7 For they that sleep sleep in the night and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

1Thessalonians 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

1Thessalonians 5:9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.(made us accepted).

1Thessalonians 5:10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep.(whether we live or die), we should live together with him.(John 8:52).

What you have gained in Christ remains:.Matthew 10:28.

1Thessalonians 5:11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together and edify one another, even as also you do.

1Thessalonians 5:12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them.(that is, don't be a stranger to them, but rather, be a friend).which labour among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you;

1Thessalonians 5:13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

1Thessalonians 5:14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded.(those having a hesitant approach to life in general, perhaps because they are downhearted, dispirited, disheartened or downcast), support the weak.(Romans 15:1; Galatians 6:2; 1Corinthians 9:19,22; 2Corinthians 1:4), be patient.(*).toward all men.

1Thessalonians 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man, but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves and to all men.

1Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing..(what does this mean?)

1Thessalonians 5:18 In.everything.(yes, even the bad and what you may not like, examples 1, 2, 3).give thanks.(why?). For this is the will of God in Christ.(*).Emmanuel concerning you.

from the original."Toward all, thanks to God for this will.(the laws to bring you all the good you want that this Great Conscious Intelligence has set up).to have in mind and resolved what one wishes or has determined to be done in this Infinite Intelligent Energy.(Acts 17:28).through Christ into yourselves.".(Psalms 100:4; Colossians 3:15) .(what is 'through Christ?)

1Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit. 

1Thessalonians 5:21 Prove all things, hold fast that which is good.

How does one prove all things? Word 'prove' in original here is 'to recognize as genuine and approved of after examination', to 'scrutinize', 'to test as metals are tested':.1John 4:1. Romans 12:2; and also. What is good?

1Thessalonians 5:22.Abstain from all appearance of evil.

Original here for word 'evil' is 'annoyances', 'hardships', 'pains', the things that present you as being an annoyance, a hardship and a pain to others; leaving evils.

1Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

1Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit.(here meaning the enlightened part of you; you in the same consciousness as God).and soul.(the invisible part of you, wherein is the pattern of your being from which various programmings enable such things as growth, puberty, menopause, repairing cuts, replacing cells, etc.).and body.(speaking of the entire physicalness of a person, like one's appearance).be preserved blameless unto the coming.(words 'unto the coming' in the original are 'in presence').of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ.

Paul was reminding them that they are always in the presence of Christ. About a second coming of Christ, see here.

1Thessalonians 5:24 Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.

1Thessalonians 5:26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.(Romans 16:16).

1Thessalonians 5:28 The grace of our Lord Emmanuel the Christ be with you. Amen..(the first epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens)
