New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Finally, dear brothers and sisters, I ask you to pray for us. Pray first that the Lord's message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you. 1 Finally, brothers, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you.
2 Pray, too, that we will be saved from wicked and evil people, for not everyone believes in the Lord. 2 And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men, for not everyone has faith.
3 But the Lord is faithful; he will make you strong and guard you from the evil one. 3 But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.
4 And we are confident in the Lord that you are practicing the things we commanded you, and that you always will. 4 We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command.
5 May the Lord bring you into an ever deeper understanding of the love of God and the endurance that comes from Christ. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts into God's love and Christ's perseverance.
