All this is evidence1 that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy2 of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.
God is just:3 He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you47
and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven5 in blazing fire6 with his powerful angels.78
He will punish8 those who do not know God9 and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.109
They will be punished with everlasting destruction11 and shut out from the presence of the Lord12 and from the majesty of his power1310
on the day14 he comes to be glorified15 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.1611
With this in mind, we constantly pray for you,17 that our God may count you worthy18 of his calling,19 and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose20 of yours and every act prompted by your faith.2112
We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you,22 and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.a
