2 Thessalonians 1
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Greetings of Grace and Thanksgiving

1Paul and Silvanus and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: 2Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

3We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is only fitting, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of each one of you all toward one another increases all the more, 4so that we ourselves boast about you among the churches of God for your [†]perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.

God’s Righteous Judgment

5This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. 6[†]Since it is right [†]for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 7and to give rest to you who are afflicted [†]and to us as well at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with [†]His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8executing vengeance on those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, AWAY FROM THE PRESENCE OF THE [†]LORD AND FROM THE GLORY OF HIS MIGHT, 10when He comes to be glorified [†]in His [†]saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our witness to you was believed. 11To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will [†]count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill all your good pleasure for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
