The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now we beg you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to him, 1 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers,
2 that ye be not soon shaken in mind, nor troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as [if it were] by us, as that the day of the Lord is present. 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 Let not any one deceive you in any manner, because [it will not be] unless the apostasy have first come, and the man of sin have been revealed, the son of perdition; 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 who opposes and exalts himself on high against all called God, or object of veneration; so that he himself sits down in the temple of God, shewing himself that he 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 Do ye not remember that, being yet with you, I said these things to you? 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
6 And now ye know that which restrains, that he should 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 the mystery of lawlessness already works; only [there is] he who restrains now until he be gone, 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 and then the lawless one shall be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus shall consume with the breath of his mouth, and shall annul by the appearing 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 whose coming is according to the working of Satan in all power and signs and wonders of falsehood, 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 and in all deceit of unrighteousness to them that perish, because they have not received the love of the truth that they might be saved. 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 And for this reason God sends to them a working of error, that they should believe what is false, 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 that all might be judged who have not believed the truth, but have found pleasure in unrighteousness. 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
13 But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved of [the] Lord, that God has chosen you from [the] beginning to salvation in sanctification of [the] Spirit and belief of [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 whereto he has called you by our glad tidings, to [the] obtaining of [the] glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
15 So then, brethren, stand firm, and hold fast the instructions which ye have been taught, whether by word or by our 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 But our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us, and given [us] eternal consolation and good hope by grace, 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 encourage your hearts, and establish you in every good work and word. 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
