1 Thessalonians 2:9-11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Beloved brothers and sisters, surely you remember how hard we labored among you. We worked night and day so that we would not become a burden to you while we preached the wonderful gospel of God. 10 With God as our witness you saw how we lived among you—in holiness, in godly relationships,[a] and without fault. 11 And you know how affectionately we treated each one of you, like a loving father cares for his own children.


  1. 1 Thessalonians 2:10 Or “righteousness.” The Hebraic concept of righteousness extends toward our relationships and how we treat others. Paul stated that he lived in holiness toward God and purity in his relationships with others, so that no one could blame him for wrongdoing.
