The Whole Revised and Diligently Compared with
the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner
A.D. 1749-1752


In this Epistle St. Paul admonishes the Thessalonians to be constant in
the faith of Christ and not to be terrified by the insinuations of false
teachers telling them that the day of judgment was near at hand, as
there must come many signs and wonders before it. He bids them to hold
firm the traditions received from him, whether by word, or by epistle,
and shews them how they may be certain of his letters by the manner he

2 Thessalonians Chapter 1

He gives thanks to God for their faith and constancy and prays for their
advancement in all good.

1:1. Paul and Sylvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians.
In God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,

1:2. Grace unto you: and peace from God our Father and from the Lord
Jesus Christ.

1:3. We are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren, as it
is fitting, because your faith groweth exceedingly and the charity of
every one of you towards each other aboundeth.

1:4. So that we ourselves also glory in you in the churches of God, for
your patience and faith, and in all your persecutions and tribulations:
which you endure

1:5. For an example of the just judgment of God, that you may be counted
worthy of the kingdom of God, for which also you suffer.

1:6. Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them
that trouble you:

1:7. And to you who are troubled, rest with us, when the Lord Jesus
shall be revealed from heaven with the angels of his power:

1:8. In a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God and
who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1:9. Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face
of the Lord and from the glory of his power:

1:10. When he shall come to be glorified in his saints and to be made
wonderful in all them who have believed; because our testimony was
believed upon you in that day.

1:11. Wherefore also we pray always for you: That our God would make you
worthy of his vocation and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness
and the work of faith in power:

1:12. That the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you
in him, according to the grace of our God and of the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians Chapter 2

The day of the Lord is not to come till the man of sin be revealed. The
apostle's traditions are to be observed.

2:1. And we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ and of our gathering together unto him:

2:2. That you be not easily moved from your sense nor be terrified,
neither by spirit nor by word nor by epistle as sent from us, as if the
day of the Lord were at hand.

2:3. Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt
first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition
