Chapter 2

Yes Word (Tyndale-Modern English)

Compare

      We beseech you brethren by the coming of our Lord *Jesu Christ, and in that we shall assemble unto him, 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. 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 which is an adversary, and is exalted above all that is called God, or that is worshipped: so that he shall sit as God in that temple of God, and show himself as God.
      Remember ye not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth: even that he might be uttered at his time. For the mystery of that iniquity doth he already work: till he which now only letteth, be taken out of the way. 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 even him whose coming is by the working of Satan, with all lying power, signs and wonders: and in all deceivableness of unrighteousness, among them that perish: because they received not the love of the truth, that they might have been saved. And therefore God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe lies: that all they might be damned which believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
      But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you brethren beloved of the Lord, for because that God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation, through sanctifying of the spirit, and through believing the truth, whereunto he called you by our Gospell, to obtain the glory that cometh of our Lord *Jesu Christ.
      Therefore brethren stand fast, and keep the ordinances which ye have learned: whether it were by our preaching, or by epistle. Our Lord Jesu Christ himself, and God our father which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and establish you in all doctrine and good doing.


*Jesu; exact spelling : Hebrew for Jesus. *perdition (utter ruin)
