Therefore, among God's churches we boast1 about your perseverance and faith2 in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.35
All this is evidence4 that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy5 of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.
God is just:6 He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you77
and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven8 in blazing fire9 with his powerful angels.108
He will punish11 those who do not know God12 and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.139
They will be punished with everlasting destruction14 and shut out from the presence of the Lord15 and from the majesty of his power1610
on the day17 he comes to be glorified18 in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.19
