The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1He exhorts them to go forward in all manner of godliness;
6to live holily and justly;
9to love one another;
11and quietly to follow their own business;
13and last of all, to sorrow moderately for the dead.
17And unto this last exhortation is annexed a brief description of the resurrection, and second coming of Christ to judgment.
