1 Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Grace be with you, and peace, from God our Father, and from our LORD Jesus Christ.
3 We are obligated to give thanks to God always for you, brothers, [and ]rightfully so, because your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all increases towards one another,
3 We ought to give thanks always to God for you, brothers, in a fitting manner, because your faith is increasing greatly, and because the charity of each of you toward one another is abundant,
3 We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;
4 so that we ourselves are boasting in you among the churches of God about your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,
4 so much so that we ourselves even glory in you among the churches of God, because of your patience and faith in all of your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,
5 [which is] evidence of the righteous judgment of God, so that you may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, on behalf of which you also suffer;
5 which are a sign of the just judgment of God, so that you may be held worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you also suffer.
5 As an example of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be made worthy of his kingdom, for which you also suffer.
6 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,
6 For certainly, it is just for God to repay trouble to those who trouble you,
6 And if it seems a righteous thing, before the presence of God, he will recompense tribulation to those who oppress you;
7 and to give you who are being afflicted rest along with us at the revelation of YHWH Jesus from heaven with His mighty angels,
7 and to repay you, who are being troubled, with a repose with us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with the Angels of his virtue,
8 in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
8 rendering vengeance to them that know not God, and to them that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus
8 At which time he will avenge, with flaming fire, those who know not God, and those who do not acknowledge the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ;
9 These shall pay a penalty-eternal destruction from the presence of YHWH and from the glory of His might,
9 who shall suffer punishment, [even] eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might,
9 For they, at the judgment day, shall be rewarded with everlasting destruction from the presence of our LORD, and from the glory of his power;
10 whenever He comes, in that Day, to be glorified among His saints and to be marveled among all those having believed, because our testimony among you was believed.
10 when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be marvelled at in all them that believed (because our testimony unto you was believed) in that day.
10 When he comes to be glorified by his saints and to perform his wonders among his faithful ones, so that our testimony, concerning you, may be believed in that day.
11 Therefore we also pray always concerning you that our God may count you worthy of [this] calling, and may fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power,
11 To which end we also pray always for you, that our God may count you worthy of your calling, and fulfil every desire of goodness and [every] work of faith, with power;
11 Because of this, too, we pray always for you, so that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may complete every act of his goodness, as well as his work of faith in virtue,
12 in order that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and YHWH Jesus Christ.
