Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 But in connection with the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah and our gathering together to meet him, we ask you, brothers, 1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers,
2 not to be easily shaken in your thinking or anxious because of a spirit or a spoken message or a letter supposedly from us claiming that the Day of the Lord has already come. 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come.
3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way. For the Day will not come until after the Apostasy has come and the man who separates himself from Torah has been revealed, the one destined for doom. 3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
4 He will oppose himself to everything that people call a god or make an object of worship; he will put himself above them all, so that he will sit in the Temple of God and proclaim that he himself is God. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
5 Don't you remember that when I was still with you, I used to tell you these things? 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
6 And now you know what is restraining, so that he may be revealed in his own time. 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.
7 For already this separating from Torah is at work secretly, but it will be secretly only until he who is restraining is out of the way. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.
8 Then the one who embodies separation from Torah will be revealed, the one whom the Lord Yeshua will slay with the breath of his mouthd and destroy by the glory of his coming. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
9 When this man who avoids Torah comes, the Adversary will give him the power to work all kinds of false miracles, signs and wonders. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,
10 He will enable him to deceive, in all kinds of wicked ways, those who are headed for destruction because they would not receive the love of the truth that could have saved them. 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
11 This is why God is causing them to go astray, so that they will believe the Lie. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 The result will be that all who have not believed the truth, but have taken their pleasure in wickedness, will be condemned. 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
13 But we have to keep thanking God for you always, brothers whom the Lord loves, because God chose you as firstfruits for deliverance by giving you the holiness that has its origin in the Spirit and the faithfulness that has its origin in the truth. 13 But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.
14 He called you to this through our Good News, so that you could have the glory of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brothers, stand firm; and hold to the traditions you were taught by us, whether we spoke them or wrote them in a letter. 15 So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
16 And may our Lord Yeshua the Messiah himself and God our Father, who has loved us and by his grace given us eternal comfort and a good hope, 16 May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope,
17 comfort your hearts and strengthen you in every good word and deed. 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
