2Thessalonians 1:2 Grace unto you and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 1:3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth.

2Thessalonians 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure.

2Thessalonians 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer.

2Thessalonians 1:6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation (original 'pressure so as to wear one away') to them that trouble (original 'to press hard upon so as to wear you out') you. (in other words 'tit for tat')

2Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

2Thessalonians 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his power.

2Thessalonians 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe, because our testimony among you was believed, in that day.

2Thessalonians 1:11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power.

2Thessalonians 1:12 That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and by our gathering together unto him,

2Thessalonians 2:3 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-(no one can deceive you unless you again become conformed to the world to the point of destruction of the flesh)-to save your spirit);

2Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God (selfwilled, proud, feeling able to fully direct his own course in life, etc., sitteth in the temple of God {feels he has total control over his own life}) sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself (or, showing to himself) that he is God (or, like God, that is, feeling he is fully capable to control his life – not understanding this).
    (like Adam who was not deceived, but made a conscious decision to break from God in order to be a god unto himself, to be in control of his own 'world', we too have been duped by the greatest trick of all time, that of seeking what's best for the SELF, rather than seeking God and let Him take care of your 'self'. So man today seeks a world for himself wherein he is the final authority over it. Thus we see the power of positive thinking, the power of man's attempt to dominate all that concerns him. Adam walked with God {for a while}, then he decided to begin to walk as god. He was deceived into an independent sense of self importance)

2Thessalonians 2:5,6 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?...And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

2Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work. Only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

2Thessalonians 2:8 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.

2Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. (paraphrased--God will send upon them a guiling swayer {the dark side} so that they'll accept falsehoods)

2Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved (dearly {of great value} loved) of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

2Thessalonians 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

2Thessalonians 2:16 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,

2Thessalonians 2:17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

2Thessalonians 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified, even as it is with you.

2Thessalonians 3:2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith.

2Thessalonians 3:3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

2Thessalonians 3:5 And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the patient waiting for Christ.

2Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

2Thessalonians 3:7 For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us. For we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you.

2Thessalonians 3:8 Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you.

2Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

2Thessalonians 3:11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

2Thessalonians 3:12 Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

2Thessalonians 3:14,15 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed...Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

2Thessalonians 3:16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you peace always by all means. The Lord be with you all.

2Thessalonians 3:18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. <The second epistle to the Thessalonians was written from Athens>
