1 Thessalonians 5:21-23 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 Test everything; retain what is good. 22 Refrain from every kind of evil.

Concluding Prayer. 23 [a]May the God of peace himself make you perfectly holy and may you entirely, spirit, soul, and body, be preserved blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:23 Another possible translation is, “May the God of peace himself make you perfectly holy and sanctify your spirit fully, and may both soul and body be preserved blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” In either case, Paul is not offering an anthropological or philosophical analysis of human nature. Rather, he looks to the wholeness of what may be called the supernatural and natural aspects of a person’s service of God.
