King James Version2 Thessalonians1

2 Thessalonians

1 Paul, and Sil­vanus, and Tim­o­theus, unto the church of the Thes­sa­lo­ni­ans in God our Fa­ther and the Lord Je­sus Christ: 2 Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Fa­ther and the Lord Je­sus Christ. 3 We are bound to thank God al­ways for you, brethren, as it is meet, be­cause that your faith groweth ex­ceed­ing­ly, and the char­i­ty of ev­ery one of you all to­ward each oth­er abound­eth; 4 So that we our­selves glo­ry in you in the church­es of God for your pa­tience and faith in all your per­se­cu­tions and tribu­la­tions that ye en­dure: 5 Which is a man­i­fest to­ken of the righ­teous judg­ment of God, that ye may be count­ed wor­thy of the king­dom of God, for which ye also suf­fer: 6 See­ing it is a righ­teous thing with God to rec­om­pense tribu­la­tion to them that trou­ble you; 7 And to you who are trou­bled rest with us, when the Lord Je­sus shall be re­vealed from heav­en with his mighty an­gels, 8 In flam­ing fire tak­ing vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Je­sus Christ: 9 Who shall be pun­ished with ev­er­last­ing de­struc­tion from the pres­ence of the Lord, and from the glo­ry of his pow­er; 10 When he shall come to be glo­ri­fied in his saints, and to be ad­mired in all them that be­lieve (be­cause our tes­ti­mo­ny among you was be­lieved) in that day. 11 Where­fore also we pray al­ways for you, that our God would count you wor­thy of this call­ing, and ful­fil all the good plea­sure of his good­ness, and the work of faith with pow­er: 12 That the name of our Lord Je­sus Christ may be glo­ri­fied in you, and ye in him, ac­cord­ing to the grace of our God and the Lord Je­sus Christ.
