Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, to the assembly of Thessalonians in God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ: 1 Paul, Silas and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:
2 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ! 2 Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 We ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because increase greatly doth your faith, and abound doth the love of each one of you all, to one another; 3 We ought always to thank God for you, brothers, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing.
4 so that we ourselves do glory in you in the assemblies of God, for your endurance and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye bear; 4 Therefore, among God's churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.
5 a token of the righteous judgment of God, for your being counted worthy of the reign of God, for which also ye suffer, 5 All this is evidence that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering.
6 since [it is] a righteous thing with God to give back to those troubling you -- trouble, 6 God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you
7 and to you who are troubled -- rest with us in the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven, with messengers of his power, 7 and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels.
8 in flaming fire, giving vengeance to those not knowing God, and to those not obeying the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ; 8 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9 who shall suffer justice -- destruction age-during -- from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his strength, 9 They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the majesty of his power
10 when He may come to be glorified in his saints, and to be wondered at in all those believing -- because our testimony was believed among you -- in that day; 10 on the day he comes to be glorified 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.
11 for which also we do pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of the calling, and may fulfil all the good pleasure of goodness, and the work of the faith in power, 11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
