Paul's Second Letter to the Thessalonians
2 Thessalonians 1
1. Paul, Silvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians that is in Allaha our Father and Maran Eashoa Msheekha. 2. May grace be with you and peace from Allaha our Father and Maran Eashoa Msheekha.
3. So as we may confess to Allaha our responsibility over you in every season, brethren, as it is our duty, so that your faithfulness may grow more and that your love may increase for all of you, and the love of every human being for their friends, 4. Just as we are also proud of you, those of us who are in the churches of Allaha, proud over your faithfulness and your Hope, that despite all your rejections and persecutions that you nevertheless continue to preach [the Kingdom,] 5. So as to demonstrate the righteous judgment of Allaha, that you may be worthy of His Kingdom, on behalf of which you sorrow, 6. And if thus righteous before Allaha, that He purges your persecutions,* 7. And to you who are being persecuted, He shall grant you eternal life with us, through the Revelation of Maran Eashoa Msheekha from heaven, together with the power of His angels, 8. When He brings into obedience by the forging fire some of those* who did not know Allaha and some of those that did not proclaim the Hope of Maran Eashoa Msheekha, 9. That they may be judged to repay by being eternally separated* from the glory of His power, 10. When He comes to be glorified by His saints, and to demonstrate the wonders of their beliefs, so that our testimony is confirmed in you on that Day. 11. Because of that we pray over you in every season, so that Allaha may make you worthy of your calling and fill you with complete desire for blessings, and the performance of the works of faith with Power, 12. So that the name of Maran Eashoa Msheekha is glorified through you, and likewise you through Him according to the grace of our Allaha and Maran Eashoa Msheekha.
