|But we ask you, brothers, concerning the advent of our Lord Jesus Christ and of our gathering to him,
|that you not be readily disturbed or terrified in your minds, by any spirit, or word, or epistle, supposedly sent from us, claiming that the day of the Lord is close by.
|Let no one deceive you in any way. For this cannot be, unless the apostasy will have arrived first, and the man of sin will have been revealed, the son of perdition,
|And so, brothers, stand firm, and hold to the traditions that you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.
|So may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who has loved us and who has given us an everlasting consolation and good hope in grace,
|exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good word and deed.
