2 Thessalonians 2
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And we ask you, brothers, in regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together to Him, 2that you are not quickly shaken in mind, nor be troubled, neither through spirit, neither through word, neither through letters as through us, as that the Day of the LORD has arrived; 3do not let anyone deceive you in any way, because if the departure may not come first, the man of lawlessness may [not] be revealed—the son of destruction, 4who is opposing and is raising himself up above all called god or worshiped, so as for him to have sat down in the temple of God, proclaiming that he is God. 5Do you not remember that, yet being with you, I said these things to you? 6And now, you have known what is restraining, for his being revealed in his own time, 7for the secret of lawlessness already works, only the [One] now restraining [will do so] until He may come out of [the] midst, 8and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the LORD will consume with the Spirit of His mouth, and will nullify at the appearance of His coming, 9whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders, 10and in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth for their being saved, 11and because of this God will send to them a working of delusion, for their believing the lie, 12that they may be judged—all who did not believe the truth, but were well pleased in the unrighteousness.

13And we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brothers, beloved by the LORD, that God chose you from the beginning to salvation, in sanctification of the Spirit, and belief of the truth, 14to which He called you through our good news, to the acquiring of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ; 15so, then, brothers, stand fast, and hold the traditions that you were taught, whether through word, whether through our letter;

16and may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who loved us, and gave continuous comfort, and good hope in grace, 17comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.
