|And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering together unto him:
|rogamus autem vos fratres per adventum Domini nostri Iesu Christi et nostrae congregationis in ipsum
|That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified, neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle. as sent from us, as if the day of the Lord were at hand.
|ut non cito moveamini a sensu neque terreamini neque per spiritum neque per sermonem neque per epistulam tamquam per nos quasi instet dies Domini
|Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition
|ne quis vos seducat ullo modo quoniam nisi venerit discessio primum et revelatus fuerit homo peccati filius perditionis
|Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.
|qui adversatur et extollitur supra omne quod dicitur Deus aut quod colitur ita ut in templo Dei sedeat ostendens se quia sit Deus
|Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
|non retinetis quod cum adhuc essem apud vos haec dicebam vobis
|And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.
|et nunc quid detineat scitis ut reveletur in suo tempore
|For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth do hold, until he be taken out of the way.
|nam mysterium iam operatur iniquitatis tantum ut qui tenet nunc donec de medio fiat
|And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him
|et tunc revelabitur ille iniquus quem Dominus Iesus interficiet spiritu oris sui et destruet inlustratione adventus sui
|Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders:
|eum cuius est adventus secundum operationem Satanae in omni virtute et signis et prodigiis mendacibus
|And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish: because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:
|et in omni seductione iniquitatis his qui pereunt eo quod caritatem veritatis non receperunt ut salvi fierent
|That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.
|ideo mittit illis Deus operationem erroris ut credant mendacio
|But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you firstfruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth:
|ut iudicentur omnes qui non crediderunt veritati sed consenserunt iniquitati
|Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
|nos autem debemus gratias agere Deo semper pro vobis fratres dilecti a Deo quod elegerit nos Deus primitias in salutem in sanctificatione Spiritus et fide veritatis
|Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the traditions, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.
|ad quod et vocavit vos per evangelium nostrum in adquisitionem gloriae Domini nostri Iesu Christi
|Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope in grace,
|itaque fratres state et tenete traditiones quas didicistis sive per sermonem sive per epistulam nostram
|Exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good work and word.
|ipse autem Dominus noster Iesus Christus et Deus et Pater noster qui dilexit nos et dedit consolationem aeternam et spem bonam in gratia
