2 aGrace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is fitting, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other, 4 so that bwe ourselves boast of you among the churches of God cfor your patience and faith din all your persecutions and 1tribulations that you endure, 5 which is emanifest 2evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, ffor which you also suffer; 6 gsince it is a righteous thing with God to repay with 3tribulation those who trouble you, 7 and to give you who are troubled hrest with us when ithe Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, 8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 jThese shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and kfrom the glory of His power, 10 when He comes, in that Day, lto be mglorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who 4believe, because our testimony among you was believed.
11 Therefore we also pray always for you that our God would ncount you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and othe work of faith with power, 12 pthat the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
