2 Thessalonians 1:1
Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the master Jesus, the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 1:2
"Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the master Jesus, the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 1:3
We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is worthy, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other abounds;
2 Thessalonians 1:4
So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure.
2 Thessalonians 1:5
[Which is] a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer.
2 Thessalonians 1:6
Seeing [it is] a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to those who trouble you;
2 Thessalonians 1:7
And to you who are troubled, rest with us, when the master Jesus will be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2 Thessalonians 1:8
In flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and who do not obey the Gospel of our master Jesus, the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 1:9
Who will be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the master, and from the glory of his power;
2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he will come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all those who believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that Day.
2 Thessalonians 1:11
Therefore we also pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of [His] goodness, and the work of faith with power.
2 Thessalonians 1:12
That the name of our master Jesus, the Messiah, may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the master Jesus, the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 2:1
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our master Jesus, the Messiah, and [by] our gathering together to him,
2 Thessalonians 2:2
That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as the Day of the Messiah is at hand.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
Let no man deceive you by any means, for [that Day will not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2 Thessalonians 2:4
Who opposes and exalts himself above all which is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
2 Thessalonians 2:5
Remember not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2 Thessalonians 2:6
And now you know what withholds that he might be revealed in his time.
2 Thessalonians 2:7
For the mystery of iniquity does already work, only he who now lets [will let], until he is taken out of the way.
2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then will that Wicked be revealed, whom the master will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and will destroy with the brightness of his coming.
2 Thessalonians 2:9
[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2 Thessalonians 2:10
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:11
And for this cause God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.
2 Thessalonians 2:12
That they all might be damned who did not believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:13
But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.
2 Thessalonians 2:14
Whereto he called you by our Gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our master Jesus, the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 2:15
Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
2 Thessalonians 2:16
Now our master Jesus, the Messiah, himself, and God, even our Father, who has loved us, and has given [us] everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
2 Thessalonians 2:17
Comfort your hearts, and establish yourself in every good word and work.
2 Thessalonians 3:1
Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have [free] course, and be glorified, even as [it is] with you.
2 Thessalonians 3:2
And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for all [men] do not have faith.
2 Thessalonians 3:3
But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you, and keep [you] from evil.
2 Thessalonians 3:4
And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that you both do and will do the things which we command you.
2 Thessalonians 3:5
And the Lord directs your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for the Messiah.
2 Thessalonians 3:6
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our master Jesus, the Messiah, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother who walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
2 Thessalonians 3:7
For yourselves know how you must follow us, for we ourselves did not behave disorderly among you;
2 Thessalonians 3:8
Neither did we eat any man's bread for nothing; but worked with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you.
2 Thessalonians 3:9
Not because we do not have power, but to make ourselves an example to you to follow us.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
2 Thessalonians 3:11
For we hear that there are some who walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
2 Thessalonians 3:12
Now those who are such we command and exhort by our master Jesus, the Messiah, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
2 Thessalonians 3:13
But you, brethren, do not be weary in well doing.
2 Thessalonians 3:14
And if any man does not obey our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
2 Thessalonians 3:15
Yet count [him] not as an enemy, but admonish [him] as a brother.
2 Thessalonians 3:16
Now the Lord of peace Himself gives you peace always by all means. The Lord [be] with you all.
2 Thessalonians 3:17
The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is the token in every epistle, so I write.
2 Thessalonians 3:18
The grace of our master Jesus, the Messiah, [be] with you all. Amen." <<[The second [epistle] to the Thessalonians was written from Athens.]>>
