Aramaic Bible in Plain English
1But we beg of you, my brethren, concerning the arrival of Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah and concerning our assembling unto him, 2That you would not be soon shaken in your minds, neither be troubled, either from word, nor from a spirit, neither from an epistle that is as if from us, namely, that, "Behold, The Day of Our Lord has arrived." 3Let no man deceive you by any means, to the effect that surely no revolt will first come and The Man of Sin, The Son of Destruction, be revealed, 4He who opposes and exalts himself against everything that is called God and religion, just as he will sit in the Temple of God, as God, and will show concerning himself as if he is God. 5Do you not remember that when I was with you, I said these things to you? 6And now you know what controls, that he may be revealed in his time. 7The mystery of evil has even now begun to work within, only if that which now controls will be taken from the midst; 8And then that Evil One will be revealed, whom Our Lord Yeshua will consume with a breath of his mouth, and will destroy him by the revelation of his coming. 9For the coming of that one is in the activity of Satan in all power, signs and false wonders, 10And in all the error of evil which is in the perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth in which they would have Life. 11Because of this, God sent them the activity of delusion that they would believe lies. 12And all those who believed not the truth, but chose evil, will be judged.
13But we are indebted to thank God always for your persons, brethren, beloved of Our Lord, that God has chosen you from the beginning for Life by sanctification of The Spirit and by belief of the truth, 14For he has called you to these things by our evangelism, that you would be* glory to Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah. 15Therefore, my brethren, be established and hold the commandments fast that you have learned, whether by discourse or by our epistle.
16But Our Lord Yeshua The Messiah, and God Our Father, who has loved us and has given us eternal comfort and good hope by his grace, 17Comfort your hearts and be occupied in every word and every good work.
