2 Thessalonians 1:3; 2 Thessalonians 1:5; 2 Thessalonians 1:11; 2 Thessalonians 2:2; 2 Thessalonians 2:4; 2 Thessalonians 2:6; 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14; 2 Thessalonians 3:5; 2 Thessalonians 3:9
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 ;
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 :
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:
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 .
Who opposeth and exalteth 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.
And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish ; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved .
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
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:
Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
