Book 53 2 Thessalonians 001:001 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, to the assembly of the Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ: 001:002 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 001:003 We are bound to always give thanks to God for you, brothers,{The word for "brothers" here and where context allows may also be correctly translated "brothers and sisters" or "siblings."} even as it is appropriate, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of each and every one of you towards one another abounds; 001:004 so that we ourselves boast about you in the assemblies of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions which you endure. 001:005 This is an obvious sign of the righteous judgment of God, to the end that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God, for which you also suffer. 001:006 Since it is a righteous thing with God to repay affliction to those who afflict you, 001:007 and to give relief to you who are afflicted with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, 001:008 giving vengeance to those who don't know God, and to those who don't obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus, 001:009 who will pay the penalty: eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might, 001:010 when he comes to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired among all those who have believed (because our testimony to you was believed) in that day. 001:011 To this end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire of goodness and work of faith, with power; 001:012 that the name of our Lord Jesus{TR adds "Christ"} may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. 002:001 Now, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to him, we ask you 002:002 not to be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Christ had come. 002:003 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the departure comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, 002:004 he who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God. 002:005 Don't you remember that, when I was still with you, I told you these things? 002:006 Now you know what is restraining him, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 002:007 For the mystery of lawlessness already works. Only there is one who restrains now, until he is taken out of the way. 002:008 Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will kill with the breath of his mouth, and destroy by the manifestation of his coming; 002:009 even he whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 002:010 and with all deception of wickedness for those who are being lost, because they didn't receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 002:011 Because of this, God sends them a working of error, that they should believe a lie; 002:012 that they all might be judged who didn't believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 002:013 But we are bound to always give thanks to God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief in the truth; 002:014 to which he called you through our Good News, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ...
