2 Thessalonians 2

1 Now as to the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, and our meeting with him, it is our desire, my brothers,

2 That you may not be moved in mind or troubled by a spirit, or by a word, or by a letter as from us, with the suggestion that the day of the Lord is even now come;

3 Give no belief to false words: because there will first be a falling away from the faith, and the revelation of the man of sin, the son of destruction,

4 Who puts himself against all authority, lifting himself up over all which is named God or is given worship; so that he takes his seat in the Temple of God, putting himself forward as God.

5 Have you no memory of what I said when I was with you, giving you word of these things?

6 And now it is clear to you what is keeping back his revelation till the time comes for him to be seen.

7 For the secret of evil is even now at work: but there is one who is keeping back the evil till he is taken out of the way.

8 And then will come the revelation of that evil one, whom the Lord Jesus will put to death with the breath of his mouth, and give to destruction by the revelation of his coming;

9 Even the one whose coming is marked by the working of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,

10 And with every deceit of wrongdoing among those whose fate is destruction; because they were quite without that love of the true faith by which they might have salvation.

11 And for this cause, God will give them up to the power of deceit and they will put their faith in what is false:

12 So that they all may be judged, who had no faith in what is true, but took pleasure in evil.




The Apocrypha

Please note that, if you want a book from the Apocrypha (1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, Greek Additions to Esther, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, Epistle of Jeremiah, Susannah, Azariah, Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon) they are currently available only by choosing "Apocrypha - King James Version".

Other than Epistle of Jeremiah, you only need the first five letters of the book name (and actually, in some cases you can use just the first three or four, e.g. "Bel"). For the Greek Additions to Ester, you can use "Greek" as the book name. For Ecclesiasticus, please use its alternate name, "Sirach".
