Chapter 2

2nd Thess. 2:1 Now we urge you, brothers, regarding the Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,

2nd Thess. 2:2 that you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as if from us, that the day of the Lord is present.

2nd Thess. 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means: for that day will not come, unless there come the apostasy first, and the men of sin unveiled, the sons of perdition;

2nd Thess. 2:4 opposing and exalting themselves above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that they like God, take their seat in the temple of God, exhibiting themselves that they are God.

2nd Thess. 2:5 Do you not remember, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2nd Thess. 2:6 And now you know what restrains that they might be unveiled in their season.

2nd Thess. 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness does already work: only he who presently restrains will do so, until they begin to come out of the midst.

2nd Thess. 2:8 Then will the lawless ones be exposed, whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of His mouth and will render useless with the full manifestation of His Presence:

2nd Thess. 2:9 even them, whose presence is according to the activity of Satan with all power and signs and pseudo wonders,

2nd Thess. 2:10 and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the reality, that they might be saved.

2nd Thess. 2:11 For this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie:

2nd Thess. 2:12 that they all may be judged who believed not the reality but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2nd Thess. 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brothers beloved of the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning into salvation in sanctification of spirit and faith in the reality:

2nd Thess. 2:14 to which He called you through our gospel, to the acquiring of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2nd Thess. 2:15 Therefore, brothers, stand fast, and hold to the things which were handed down to you and which you have been taught, whether by word, or our letter.

2nd Thess. 2:16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and God, even our Father, who has loved us, and has given us perpetual comfort and good hope through grace,

2nd Thess. 2:17 comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.
