How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

帖撒羅尼迦前書 – 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

12 弟兄們,我們勸你們敬重那在你們中間勞苦的人,就是在主裡面治理你們、勸誡你們的。 13 又因他們所做的工,用愛心格外尊重他們。你們也要彼此和睦。 14 我們又勸弟兄們,要警戒不守規矩的人,勉勵灰心的人,扶助軟弱的人,也要向眾人忍耐。 15 你們要謹慎,無論是誰都不可以惡報惡。或是彼此相待,或是待眾人,常要追求良善。 16 要常常喜樂, 17 不住地禱告, 18 凡事謝恩,因為這是神在基督耶穌裡向你們所定的旨意。 19 不要消滅聖靈的感動, 20 不要藐視先知的講論。 21 但要凡事察驗,善美的要持守, 22 各樣的惡事要禁戒不做。 23 願賜平安的神親自使你們全然成聖!又願你們的靈與魂與身子得蒙保守,在我們主耶穌基督降臨的時候完全無可指摘! 24 那召你們的本是信實的,他必成就這事。 25 請弟兄們為我們禱告。 26 與眾弟兄親嘴問安務要聖潔。 27 我指著主囑咐你們,要把這信念給眾弟兄聽。 28 願我主耶穌基督的恩常與你們同在!

12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. 14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is good for each other and for everyone else. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt 21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil. 23 May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 25 Brothers and sisters, pray for us. 26 Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss. 27 I charge you before the Lord to have this letter read to all the brothers and sisters. 28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
