God’s Judgment and Glory

3We ought to thank God always for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, since your faith is flourishing and the lovea each one of you has for one anotherb is increasing.c 4Therefore, we ourselves boasta about you among God’s churches — about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and afflictions that you are enduring. 5It is clear evidence of God’s righteousa judgmentb that you will be counted worthy of God’s kingdom, for which you also are suffering,c 6since it is just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you 7and to give relief to you who are afflicted, along with us. This will take place at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with his powerful angels, 8when he takes vengeance with flaming firea on those who don’t know Godb and on those who don’t obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.c 9They will pay the penalty of eternal destructiona from the Lord’s presenceb and from his glorious strengthc 10on that day when he comesa to be glorifiedb by his saintsc and to be marveled at by all those who have believed, because our testimony among you was believed. 11In view of this, we always pray for you that our God will make you worthy of his calling,a and by his power fulfill your every desire to do goodA and your work produced by faith,b 12so that the namea of our Lord Jesus will be glorifiedb by you, and you by him,c according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
