4who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God gproclaiming himself to be God. 5Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. 7For hthe mystery of lawlessness iis already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way.
