帖撒罗尼迦后书 1

1我保罗同西拉和提摩太写信给帖撒罗尼迦属于我们父上帝和主耶稣基督的教会。

愿我们的父上帝和主耶稣基督赐给你们恩典和平安!

感恩与劝勉

弟兄姊妹,我们应当为你们常常感谢上帝,这是合宜的,因为你们的信心不断增长,彼此相爱的心也不断增加。 因此,我们在上帝的众教会中夸奖你们在各种迫害和患难中的坚忍和信心。 你们这种表现正是上帝公义审判的明证,使你们配进上帝的国,你们正在为这国受苦。

上帝是公义的,祂必以患难来报应那些迫害你们的人。 当主耶稣和祂大能的天使在烈焰中从天上显现时,祂必使你们这些受苦的人和我们同得安慰, 惩罚那些不认识上帝、不听从有关我们主耶稣之福音的人。 那些人要受的刑罚就是离开主的面和祂荣耀的权能,永远灭亡。 10 主降临的那日,祂要在祂的众圣徒中得到荣耀,使所有的信徒惊叹不已。你们也会在当中,因为你们相信了我们做的见证。

11 因此,我们常常为你们祷告,愿我们的上帝看你们配得祂的呼召,用大能成全你们一切美好的心愿和凭信心所做的工作。 12 这样,按照我们的上帝和主耶稣基督所赐的恩典,主耶稣基督的名便在你们身上得到荣耀,你们也在祂身上得到荣耀。

New Living Translation

2 Thessalonians 1

Greetings from Paul

1This letter is from Paul, Silas,[a] and Timothy.

We are writing to the church in Thessalonica, to you who belong to God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

May God our Father[b] and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Encouragement during Persecution

Dear brothers and sisters,[c] we can’t help but thank God for you, because your faith is flourishing and your love for one another is growing. We proudly tell God’s other churches about your endurance and faithfulness in all the persecutions and hardships you are suffering. And God will use this persecution to show his justice and to make you worthy of his Kingdom, for which you are suffering. In his justice he will pay back those who persecute you.

And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels, in flaming fire, bringing judgment on those who don’t know God and on those who refuse to obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with eternal destruction, forever separated from the Lord and from his glorious power. 10 When he comes on that day, he will receive glory from his holy people—praise from all who believe. And this includes you, for you believed what we told you about him.

11 So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. 12 Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.[d]
