Man of Lawlessness

1 Now we request you, 1brethren, with regard to the a2coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our 3gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your bcomposure or be disturbed either by a 4spirit or a c5message or a 6letter as if from us, to the effect that 7the day of the Lord 8has come. 3 9Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the d10apostasy comes first, and the 11man of lawlessness is revealed, the 12son of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above e13every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, 14displaying himself as being God. 5 Do you not remember that 15while I was still with you, I was telling you these things? 6 And you know 16what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7 For 17the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only 18he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8 Then that lawless one 19will be revealed whom the Lord will slay 20with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the 21appearance of His fcoming; 9 that is, the one whose gcoming is in accord with the activity of 22Satan, with all power and h23signs and false wonders, 10 and with iall the deception of wickedness for 24those who perish, because they did not receive the love of 25the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason 26God jwill send upon them ka 27deluding influence so that they will believe lwhat is false, 12 in order that they all may be mjudged who 28did not believe the truth, but n29took pleasure in wickedness.
