2 Thessalonians 1

Thanksgiving for Faith and Perseverance

1 a  Paul and b  Silvanus and c  Timothy,

To the d  church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2 e  Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3We ought always f  to give thanks to God for you, g  brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the h  love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater; 4therefore, we ourselves i  speak proudly of you among j  the churches of God for your
Or steadfastness
perseverance and faith l  in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.
5This is a m  plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be n  considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. 6
Lit If indeed
For after all p  it is only just
Or in the sight of
for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,
7and to give relief to you who are afflicted
Lit along with us
and to us as well
Lit at the revelation of the Lord Jesus
,
t  when the Lord Jesus will be revealed u  from heaven v  with
Lit the angels of His power
His mighty angels x  in flaming fire,
8dealing out retribution to those who y  do not know God and to those who z  do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9These will pay the penalty of aa  eternal destruction ab  away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10when He comes to be ac  glorified
Or in the persons of
in His
Or holy ones
saints on that af  day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed— for our ag  testimony to you was believed.
11To this end also we ah  pray for you always, that our God will
Or make
,
aj  count you worthy of your ak  calling, and fulfill every desire for al  goodness and the am  work of faith with power,
12so that the an  name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
