So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure :
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:
And then shall that Wicked be revealed , whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish ; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved .
Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore , brethren, stand fast , and hold the traditions which ye have been taught , whether by word, or our epistle.
But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
The salutation of Paul with mine own hand, which is the token in every epistle: so I write .
