Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to 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 upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has 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 [that day] will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness 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 opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God's sanctuary, publicizing 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 told you about this? 5 Don't you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?
6 And you know what currently restrains [him], so that he will be revealed in his 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 is already at work; but the one now restraining will do so until he 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 and then the lawless one will be revealed. The Lord Jesus will destroy him with the breath of His mouth and will bring him to nothing with 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 The coming [of the lawless one] is based on Satan's working, with 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 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. [They perish] because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to 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 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 so that all will be condemned-those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness. 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
