2Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.2Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of every one of you for one another is increasing.3We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater;
4Therefore we ourselves boast about you in the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith in all your persecutions and in the afflictions that you are enduring.4therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure.
5This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering—5This is a plain indication of God's righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering.
6since indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you,6For after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,
7and to grant relief to you who are afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels7and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire,
8in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.8dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
9They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might,9These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,
10when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed.10when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed-- for our testimony to you was believed.
11To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power,11To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power,
12so 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.12so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
