1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, aand by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, dexcept there come a falling away first, and cthat man of sin be revealed, bthe son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and eexalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For fthe mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, iwhom the Lord shall consume hwith the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy gwith the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is jafter the working of Satan with all power and ksigns and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in lthem that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And mfor this cause God shall send them strong delusion, nthat they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold othe traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 16 Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, pwhich hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, 17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
