1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.
