Tas'loniqim 1; (Thessalonians) 1:13-18

13  Now, brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you be sad as others who have no expectation.

14  For if we believe that יהושע died and rose again, so also Elohim shall bring with Him those who sleep in יהושע.

15  For this we say to you by the word of the Master, that we, the living who are left over at the coming of the Master shall in no way go before those who are asleep.

16  Because the Master Himself shall come down from the shamayim with a shout, with the voice of a chief messenger, and with the trumpet of Elohim, and the dead in Mashiaḥ shall rise first.

17  Then we, the living who are left over, shall be caught away together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air - and so we shall always be with the Master.

18  So, then, encourage one another with these words.
