NASB — 2 Thessalonians 2 — KJV

Man of Lawlessness

1 Now we request you, abrethren, with regard to the Ibcoming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our cgathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your Icomposure or be disturbed either by a aspirit or a IIbmessage or a cletter as if from us, to the effect that dthe day of the Lord ehas come. 3 aLet no one in any way deceive you, for [it will not come] unless the Ibapostasy comes first, and the cman of lawlessness is revealed, the dson of destruction, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above Iaevery so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, bdisplaying himself as being God. 5 Do you not remember that awhile I was still with you, I was telling you these things? 6 And you know awhat restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. 7 For athe mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only bhe who now restrains [will do so] until he is taken out of the way. 8 Then that lawless one awill be revealed whom the Lord will slay bwith the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the cappearance of His Icoming; 9 [that is], the one whose Icoming is in accord with the activity of aSatan, with all power and IIbsigns and false wonders, 10 and with Iall the deception of wickedness for athose who perish, because they did not receive the love of bthe truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason aGod Iwill send upon them IIa bdeluding influence so that they will believe IIIwhat is false, 12 in order that they all may be Ijudged who adid not believe the truth, but IIbtook pleasure in wickedness.

He willeth them to continue stedfast in the truth received,

1 ¶ Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and [by] our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

sheweth that there shall be a departure from the faith,

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way.

and a discovery of antichrist, before the day of the Lord come.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: 14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
