2 Thessalonians 1

Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, unto the Church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as it is worthy, because your faith increases, and the divine love of each one of you all towards one another abounds more and more; so that we ourselves rejoice over you in the churches of God, on account of your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations which you endure; the manifestation of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you indeed suffer: if indeed it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them who are troubling you, and to you who are troubled, rest with us, in the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with the angels of his power in the fire of flame, dispensing vengeance to those who know not God, and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus: who shall suffer vengeance, eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might, 10 when he may come to be glorified among his saints, and among all those who believe, to be wondered at in that day, because our testimony was believed by you. 11 Unto which indeed we are praying incessantly for you, in order that our God may count you worthy of the calling, and may fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness and work of faith, with power; 12 in order that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
