2:1 But, brethren, we pray you by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of our congregation into the same thing, We beseech you brethren by the coming of our lord Jesus Christ, and in that we shall assemble unto him, Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our assembling unto him, Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2:2 that ye be not moved soon from your wit, neither be aghast, neither by spirit, neither by word, neither by epistle as sent by us, as if the day of the Lord be nigh. that ye be not suddenly moved from your mind, and be not troubled, neither by spirit, neither by words, nor yet by letter, which should seem to come from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand. That ye be not suddenly moved from your mind, nor troubled neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as it were from us, as though the day of Christ were at hand. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter, as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
2:3 That no man deceive you in any manner. For no but departing away shall come first, and the man of sin be shewed, the son of perdition, Let no man deceive you by any means, for the lord cometh not, except there come a departing first, and that that sinful man be opened, the son of perdition Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a departing first, and that that man of sin be disclosed, even the son of perdition, Let no man deceive you by any means, for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,
2:4 that is adversary, and is enhanced upon all things that is said God, or that is worshipped, so that he sit in the temple of God, shewing himself as that he be God. which is an adversary, and is exalted above all that is called god, or that is worshipped: so that he shall sit in the temple of god, and shew himself as god. Which is an adversary, and exalteth himself against all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he doth sit as God in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he as God, sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2:5 Whether ye hold not, that yet when I was at you, I said these things to you? Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2:6 And now what withholdeth him, ye know, that he be shewed in his time. and now ye know what withholdeth: even that he might be uttered at his time. And now ye know what withholdeth, that he might be revealed in his time. And now ye know what withholdeth, that he might be revealed in his time.
2:7 For why the mystery of wickedness worketh now; only that he that holdeth now, hold, till he be done away. For already the mystery of iniquity worketh. Only he that holdeth, let him now hold, until it be taken out of the way, For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he which now withholdeth, shall let till he be taken out of the way. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth, will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2:8 And then that wicked man shall be shewed, whom the Lord Jesus shall slay with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the illumining of his coming; and then shall that wicked be uttered, whom the lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the appearance of his coming, And then shall the wicked man be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of his mouth, and shall abolish with the brightness of his coming, And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2:9 him, whose coming is after the working of Satan, in all virtue, and signs, and great wonders, lying, even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all lying power, signs, and wonders: Even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all power and signs, and lying wonders, Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan, with all power and signs, and lying wonders,
2:10 and in all deceit of wickedness, to them that perish. For that they received not the charity of truth, that they should be made safe. and in all deceivableness of unrightwiseness, among them that perish: because they have not received the love of the truth, that they might have been saved. And in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness, in them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2:11 And therefore God shall send to them a working of error, that they believe to lying, And therefore god shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies: And therefore God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies, And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2:12 that all be deemed which believed not to truth, but consented to wickedness. that all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrightwiseness. That all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2:13 Forsooth we owe to do thankings evermore to God for you, brethren loved of God, that God chose us primacies into health, in hallowing of Spirit and faith of truth; We are bound to give thanks alway to god for you brethren beloved of the lord, for because that God hath from the beginning chosen you to health, through sanctifying of the spirit, And through believing the truth: But we ought to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because that God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation, through sanctification of the Spirit, and the faith of truth, But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren, beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation, through sanctification of the spirit, and belief of the truth,
2:14 in which also he called you by our gospel, into the getting of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. whereunto he called you by our gospel, to obtain the glory that cometh of our lord Jesus Christ. Whereunto he called you by our Gospel, to obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whereunto he called you by our Gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand ye, and hold ye the traditions, that ye have learned, either by word, or by our epistle. Therefore brethren stand fast and keep the ordinations, which ye have learned: whether it were by our preaching, or by our epistle: Therefore, brethren, stand fast and keep the instructions, which ye have been taught, either by word, or by our Epistle. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word or our Epistle.
2:16 And our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, which loved us, and gave everlasting comfort and good hope in grace, Our lord Jesus Christ himself, and god our father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope through grace, Now the same Jesus Christ our Lord & our God even the Father which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation, and good hope through grace,
2:17 stir your hearts, and confirm you in all good work and word. comfort your hearts, and stablish you in all saying, and good doing. Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every word and good work. Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
