Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And we ask you, brethren, in regard to the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our gathering together unto 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 quickly shaken in mind, nor be troubled, neither through spirit, neither through word, neither through letters as through us, as that the day of Christ hath arrived; 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 -- if the falling away may not come first, and the man of sin be revealed -- the son of the 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 who is opposing and is raising himself up above all called God or worshipped, so that he in the sanctuary of God as God hath sat down, shewing himself off that he is God -- [the day doth not come]. 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, these things I said to you? 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
6 and now, what is keeping down ye have known, for his being 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 secret of the lawlessness doth already work, only he who is keeping down now [will hinder] -- till he may be 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 and then shall be revealed the Lawless One, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the manifestation of his presence, 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 [him,] whose presence is according to the working of the Adversary, in 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 in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because the love of the truth they did not receive for their being 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 because of this shall God send to them a working of delusion, for their believing the lie, 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 that they may be judged -- all who did not believe the truth, but were well pleased in the unrighteousness. 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
13 And we -- we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved by the Lord, that God did choose 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 to which He did call you through our good news, to the acquiring 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 ye fast, and hold the deliverances that ye were taught, whether through word, whether through 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 and may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and our God and Father, who did love us, and did give comfort age-during, and good hope in 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 word and work. 17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.
