Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now we beg you, brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, 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 to the end that you won't be quickly shaken in your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by letter as from us, saying that the day of Messiah had 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 Let no one deceive you in any way. For it will not be, unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, 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 who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as 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 told you these things? 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
6 Now you know what is restraining him, to the end that he may be revealed in his own season. 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 does already work. Only there is one who restrains now, until he is taken 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 will the lawless one be revealed, whom the Lord will kill with the breath of his mouth, and bring to nothing by the brightness 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 even he whose coming is according to the working of Hasatan with all power and signs and lying 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 and with all deception of wickedness for those who are being lost, because they didn't receive 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 Because of this, God sends them a working of error, that they should believe a lie; 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 that they all might be judged who didn't believe the truth, but had 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 are bound to always give thanks to God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you from the beginning for 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 whereunto he called you through our Good News, to the obtaining of 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 So then, brothers, stand firm, and hold the traditions which you were taught by us, whether by word, or by 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 Now our Lord Yeshua the Messiah himself, and God, our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through 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 comfort your hearts and establish you in every good work and word. 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
