Joy - crown (χαρὰ - στέφανος)

Comp. Philippians 4:1. The phrase crown of rejoicing or boasting, in Proverbs 16:31; Ezekiel 16:12; Ezekiel 23:42. Comp. Isaiah 62:3, στέφανος κάλλους crown of beauty, and Soph. Aj. 465, στέφ εὐκλείας crown of renown. The Thessalonians were "a chaplet of victory of which Paul might justly make his boast in the day of the Lord" (Ellicott). For στέφανος see on Revelation 4:4.

Coming (παρουσίᾳ)

See on Matthew 24:8, and see on ἐπιφάνεια appearing, 1 Timothy 6:14 and see on 2 Thessalonians 2:8.
