2 Thessalonians 1 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)

¶ Paul and Silvanus and Timothy, unto the congregation[a] of the Thessalonians in God our Father and in our Lord Jesus Christ:

Grace unto you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We must thank God always for you, brethren, as is due because your faith grows exceedingly, and the charity of each and every one of you toward each other abounds,

so that we ourselves glory in you in the congregations[b] of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure and

¶ in testimony of the just judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer,

seeing it is a just thing with God to recompense tribulation to those that trouble you

and to give you, who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with the angels of his power,

with flaming fire, to take vengeance on those that do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ,

who shall be punished with eternal destruction by the presence of the Lord and by the glory of his power,

10 when he shall come to be glorified in his saints and to be admired in all those that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

11 ¶ Therefore in this manner we pray always for you that our God would count you worthy of his calling and fill each will with goodness and the work of faith with power

12 that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be clarified in you, and ye in him, by the grace of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1 New International Version (NIV)

Paul, Silas[a] and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ:

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving and Prayer

We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters,[b] and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might 10 on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.

11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.[c]
