II Thessalonians 2:1-13
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by
the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
and by our gathering together unto
2 That ye be not soon shaken in
mind, or be troubled, neither by
spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as
from us, as that the day of Christ is
at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any
means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away
first, and that man of sin be
revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself
above all that is called God, or that
is worshipped; so that he as God
sitteth in the temple of God, shewing
himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was
yet with you, I told you these
6 And now ye know what withholdeth
that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth
already work: only he who now letteth
will let, until he be taken out of
the way.
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:
9 Even him, whose coming is after
the working of Satan with all power
and signs and lying wonders,
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.
11 And for this cause God shall
send them strong delusion, that they
should believe a lie:
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:
