2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

AUV(i) 9 The coming [of this lawless person] is according to the work of Satan, [and will be] attended by all kinds of powerful [i.e., miraculous] signs and false wonders, 10 and all kinds of wicked deception toward those people who are perishing [spiritually], because they refused to love the truth so they could be saved. 11 And this is the reason that God sends them a strong delusion [to influence them]: It is so that they would believe the lie, 12 in order that all those who have not believed the truth, but have taken pleasure in wrongdoing, would be condemned.
