2 Tesalonica 1:1-12

1Mula kay Pablo, kasama sina Silas at Timoteo.

Mahal kong mga kapatid sa iglesya1:1 iglesya: Tingnan sa Talaan ng mga Salita sa likod. diyan sa Tesalonica na nasa Dios na ating Ama at sa Panginoong Jesu-Cristo:

2Sumainyo nawa ang biyaya at kapayapaang galing sa Dios Ama at sa Panginoong Jesu-Cristo.

Ang Pagbabalik ni Cristo at ang Paghuhukom

3Mga kapatid, lagi kaming nagpapasalamat sa Dios dahil sa inyo. Nararapat lang na gawin namin ito, dahil patuloy na lumalago ang pananampalataya nʼyo kay Cristo at pagmamahalan sa isaʼt isa. 4Kaya naman, ipinagmamalaki namin kayo sa mga iglesya ng Dios sa ibang lugar dahil sa katatagan at pananampalataya nʼyo, sa kabila ng lahat ng dinaranas ninyong paghihirap at pag-uusig.

5Nagpapatunay ang mga ito na makatarungan ang hatol ng Dios, dahil ang dinaranas ninyong paghihirap para sa kaharian niya ay gagamitin niyang patotoo na karapat-dapat nga kayong mapabilang dito. 6Gagawin ng Dios ang nararapat; tiyak na pahihirapan niya ang mga nagpapahirap sa inyo. 7At kayong mga naghihirap ay bibigyan niya ng kapahingahan kasama namin. Mangyayari ito pagbalik ng Panginoong Jesus galing sa langit kasama ng makapangyarihan niyang mga anghel. 8Darating siyang napapalibutan ng nagliliyab na apoy, at parurusahan niya ang mga hindi kumikilala sa Dios at hindi sumusunod sa Magandang Balita tungkol sa ating Panginoong Jesus. 9Parurusahan sila ng walang hanggang paghihirap at pagkawalay sa Panginoon, at hindi na nila makikita pa ang dakila niyang kapangyarihan. 10Mangyayari ito sa araw ng pagbabalik niya, at papapurihan at pararangalan siya ng mga pinabanal niya na walang iba kundi ang lahat ng sumasampalataya sa kanya. Kabilang kayo rito, dahil sumampalataya kayo sa ipinahayag namin sa inyo.

11Ito ang dahilan kung bakit lagi namin kayong ipinapanalangin. Dalangin namin na tulungan sana kayo ng Dios na mamuhay nang karapat-dapat bilang mga tinawag niya. At dalangin din namin na sa tulong ng kapangyarihan niya, magawa nʼyo ang lahat ng mabubuting bagay na gusto ninyong gawin dahil sa inyong pananampalataya. 12Sa ganitong paraan, mapaparangalan nʼyo ang ating Panginoong Jesus at kayo naman ay mapaparangalan niya ayon sa biyaya ng ating Dios at ng Panginoong Jesu-Cristo.

2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

1I, Paul, am writing this letter. Silas and Timothy join me in writing.

We are sending this letter to you, the members of the church in Thessalonica. You belong to God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2May God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.

Paul Prays and Gives Thanks

3Brothers and sisters, we should always thank God for you. That is only right, because your faith is growing more and more. We also thank God that the love you all have for one another is increasing. 4So among God’s churches we brag about the fact that you don’t give up easily. We brag about your faith in all the suffering and testing you are going through.

5All of this proves that when God judges, he is fair. So you will be considered worthy to enter God’s kingdom. You are suffering for his kingdom. 6God is fair. He will pay back trouble to those who give you trouble. 7He will help you who are troubled. And he will also help us. All these things will happen when the Lord Jesus appears from heaven. He will come in blazing fire. He will come with his powerful angels. 8He will punish those who don’t know God. He will punish those who don’t obey the good news about our Lord Jesus. 9They will be destroyed forever. They will be shut out of heaven. They will never see the glory of the Lord’s strength. 10All these things will happen when he comes. On that day his glory will be seen in his holy people. Everyone who has believed will be amazed when they see him. This includes you, because you believed the witness we gave you.

11Keeping this in mind, we never stop praying for you. Our God has chosen you. We pray that he will make you worthy of his choice. We pray he will make every good thing you want to do come true. We pray that he will do this by his power. We pray that he will make perfect all that you have done by faith. 12We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus will receive glory through what you have done. We also pray that you will receive glory through what he has done. We pray all these things in keeping with the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
