2 Thessalonians 1
1 Paul certifieth them of the good opinion which he had of their faith, love, and patience: 11 and therewithal useth divers reasons for the comforting of them in persecution, whereof the chiefest is taken from the righteous judgment of God.
1:1 ¶ Paul and Silvanus and Timothyunto the assembly of Thessalonians, in God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ,
1:2 Favour unto you, and peace, from God [our] Father and Lord Jesus Christ.
1:3 We are bound, to be giving thanks, unto God, continually, concerning you, brethren, even as it is, meet; because your faith groweth exceedingly, and the love of each one of you all one to another aboundeth,
1:4 So that, we ourselves, in you, are boasting, in the assemblies of God, over your endurance and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations which ye are sustaining:
1:5 ¶ A proof of the righteous judgment of God, to the end ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, in behalf of which ye are also suffering:
1:6 If, at least, it is a, righteous thing with God, to recompense, affliction, unto them that afflict you,
1:7 And, unto you that are afflicted, release, with us,by the revealing of the Lord Jesus from heaven, with his messengers of power,
1:8 In a fiery flame; holding forth vengeanceagainst them that refuse to know God, and them who decline to hearken unto the glad-message of our Lord Jesus,
1:9 Who, indeed, a penalty, shall payage-abiding destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might
1:10 Whensoever he shall come, to be made all-glorious in his saints, and to be marveled at in all who believed,because our witness unto you was believed,in that day.
1:11 ¶ Unto which end, we are also praying continually for you, that our God may count, you, worthy of your calling, and fulfill every good-pleasure of goodness and work of faith, with power,
1:12 That the name of our Lord Jesus may be made all-glorious in you, and, ye, in him, According to the favour of our God and Lord Jesus Christ.
