1 Thessalonians 4:1-6

So it remains, brothers, for us to ask and encourage you in the Lord Jesus, that just as you learned from us how you must walk in a path pleasing to God -- and so you do walk -- that you do so more and more. For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus.

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: for you to keep far away from whoredom; for each of you to know how to acquire his own possession in sanctification and honour, not in a passion of lust like the nations who do not know God; not to overreach and defraud your brother in your affairs; for the Lord is the avenger for all that, as we foretold to you and bore solemn witness.
