2 Thessalonians

Sawyer(i) 1 (1:1) PAUL and Silvanus [Silas] and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 (1:2) We ought to thank God always for you, brothers, as is fit, because your faith increases greatly, and the love of every one of you all one for another abounds, 4 so that we boast of you in the churches of God, of your patience and faith, in all your persecutions and the afflictions which you endure, 5 a token of the righteous judgment of God that you should be deemed worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer, 6 since it is just with God to repay affliction to those who afflict you, 7 and to you who are afflicted rest with us at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his mighty angels 8 in a flame of fire, executing judgment on all that know not God and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus; 9 who shall suffer the punishment of eternal destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power, 10 when he shall come to be glorified in his saints and to be admired by all that believe in that day, for our testimony was believed by you. 11 For which also we pray always for you, that our God will account you worthy of the calling, and accomplish all the good pleasure of [his] goodness and the work of faith with power; 12 that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
