▼ 1) Gr in behalf of 2) Gr presence2 to the end that ye be not quickly shaken from your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by epistle as from us, as that the day of the Lord is just at hand; 3 let no man beguile you in any wise: for it will not be, except the falling away come first, and the man of ▼ sin be revealed, the son of perdition, ▼
▼ 1) Many ancient authorities read lawlessness4 he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or ▼ that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the ▼ temple of God, setting himself forth as God. ▼
▼ 1) Gr an object of worship ; Ac 17:23. 2) Or sanctuary5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know that which restraineth, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness doth already work: ▼ only there is one that restraineth now, until he be taken out of the way. ▼
▼ 1) Or only until he that now restraineth be taken etc8 And then shall be revealed the lawless one, whom the Lord ▼ Jesus shall ▼ slay with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nought by the manifestation of his ▼
▼ 3coming; ▼
▼ 1) Some ancient authorities omit Jesus 2) Some ancient authorities read consume 3) Gr presence9 even he , whose ▼ coming is according to the working of Satan with all ▼ power and signs and lying wonders, ▼
▼ 1) Gr presence 2) Gr power and signs and wonders of falsehood10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness for them that ▼ perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. ▼
▼ 1) Or are perishing11 And for this cause God sendeth them a working of error, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be judged who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, for that God chose you ▼ from the beginning unto salvation in sanctification of the Spirit and ▼ belief of the truth: ▼
