2 Thessalonians 1

Thanksgiving for Faith and Perseverance

1Paul and Silvanus and Timothy,

To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater; therefore, we ourselves speak proudly of you among the churches of God for your [a]perseverance and faith in the midst of all your persecutions and afflictions which you endure. This is a plain indication of God’s righteous judgment so that you will be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which indeed you are suffering. [b]For after all it is only just [c]for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to you who are afflicted [d]and to us as well [e]when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with [f]His mighty angels in flaming fire, dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified [g]in His [h]saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed. 11 To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will [i]count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Wathesalonike 1

1Kutoka kwa Paulo, Silvano na Timotheo. Kwa kanisa la Wathes alonike mlio wa Mungu Baba yetu na wa Bwana Yesu Kristo. Tuna watakieni neema na amani kutoka kwa Mungu Baba na Bwana Yesu Kristo.

Sala Na Shukrani

Hatuna budi kumshukuru Mungu daima kwa ajili yenu, ndugu wapendwa; na ndivyo inavyostahili kwa sababu imani yenu inaongezeka zaidi na zaidi na upendo wa kila mmoja wenu kwa mwen zake unazidi kuongezeka. Ndio maana sisi tunajivuna kwa ajili yenu miongoni mwa makanisa ya Mungu. Tunajivuna juu ya uvumilivu wenu na imani mliyo nayo katika mateso yote na dhiki mnazopata.

Haya yote yanathibitisha kwamba hukumu ya Mungu ni ya haki na kwa sababu hiyo ninyi mtastahili kupata Ufalme wa Mungu ambao mnateswa kwa ajili yake. Mungu ni wa haki: atawalipa kwa mateso wale wanaowatesa ninyi na kuwapeni ninyi mnaoteseka nafuu pamoja na sisi pia. Haya yatatokea wakati Bwana Yesu atakapodhi hirishwa kutoka mbinguni katika mwali wa moto pamoja na malaika wake wenye nguvu. Atawahukumu wale wasiomjua Mungu, wasioitii Habari Njema ya Bwana wetu Yesu. Wataadhibiwa kwa kuangamizwa milele na kutengwa na uso wa Bwana na utukufu wa nguvu zake, 10 siku ile atakapokuja kutukuzwa kwa ajili ya watakatifu wake na kustaajabiwa na watu wote walioamini. Ninyi pia mtakuwa mion goni mwa hawa kwa sababu mliamini ushuhuda wetu kwenu.

11 Kwa sababu hii tunawaombeeni bila kukoma, kwamba Mungu awahesabu kuwa mnastahili maisha aliyowaitia na kwamba kwa uwezo wake apate kutimiza kila nia njema mliyo nayo na kila tendo linalotokana na imani yenu. 12 Tunaomba hivi ili jina la Bwana wetu Yesu litukuzwe kwa ajili yenu nanyi mtukuzwe kwa ajili yake, kulingana na neema ya Mungu wetu na Bwana Yesu Kristo.
