10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.10and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.10and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved.10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.10and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved.
11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie11Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,11For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:11For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false,
12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.12in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.12in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.12so that all will be condemned--those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.
