“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:18 For this - That you should thus rejoice, pray, give thanks. Is the will of God - Always good, always pointing at our salvation.
1Th 5:18 In every thing give thanks. Always be thankful for God's benefits, and always express your thanks. For scriptural examples, see Ac 27:35 2Co 1:11 Act 28:15 Eph 5:20. This is the will of God. The three duties just named are probably comprehended (1Th 5:16,17).
