1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timothy, unto the Koinonia of the Thessalonians, in Elohim our Father, through The Lord, Messiah Yeshua:
2 Grace unto you, and peace, from Elohim our Father, through The Lord, Messiah Yeshua.
3 We are bound to thank Elohim always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because your faith that grows exceedingly, and the charity of everyone of you all toward each other abounds,
4 so that we ourselves glory in you in the fellowships of Elohim, for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure.
5 This is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of Elohim; that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of YHVH, for which you also suffer.
6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with Elohim to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you,
7 and to you who are troubled, rest with us; when The Lord Yeshua shall be revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels,
8 in flaming fire, taking vengeance on them that know not Elohim, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Messiah Yeshua.
9 They shall be punished with everlasting destruction, from the presence of The Lord, and from the glory of His power,
10 when He shall come to be glorified in His Saints, and to be admired in all them that believe, because our testimony among you was believed in that day.
11 Therefore, we also pray always for you, that Adonai our Elohim, would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power;
12 that the name of our Lord, Messiah Yeshua, may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of Elohim, through The Lord, Messiah Yeshua.

1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Messiah Yeshua, and by our gathering together unto Him,
2 that you 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 Messiah is at hand.
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 opposes and exalts himself above all that is called Holy, or that is worshiped, so that he, as a god, sits in the temple of Elohim, showing himself that he is Elohim!
5 Don't you remember when I was yet with you, that I told you these things?
6 And now you know what is withheld; that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work; only He who now lets will allow it, until he is taken out of the way.
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 deceiving and unrighteousness within them that perish, because they received not, the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 So for this cause, Elohim shall send them strong delusions so that they will believe lies;
12 that they all might be damned, who believed not in truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always unto Elohim for you, brethren beloved of The Lord, because Elohim has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Where unto He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord, Messiah Yeshua.
15 Therefore brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions that you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our Lord Messiah Yeshua Himself; Elohim our Father, which have Loved us and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace:
17 Comfort your hearts, and establish yourself in every good word and work.

Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of The Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men, for all men have not faith.
But The Lord is faithful, who shall establish you and keep you from evil.
We have confidence in The Lord touching you, that you both do, and will do, the things which we command you.
And The Lord direct your hearts into the Love of Elohim, and into the patient waiting for Messiah Yeshua.
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Messiah Yeshua, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition that he received of us.
For you know how you ought to follow us, for we ourselves did not behave disorderly among you,
neither did we eat anyone's bread for naught, but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you.
Not because we have no rights, but to make ourselves an example unto you to follow us.
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you; that if anyone would not work, neither should they eat.
For we hear that there are some among you that walk disorderly, not working at all, but are busybodies.
Now, them that are such, we command and exhort by our Lord Messiah Yeshua, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.
But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.
And if anyone does not obey our word by this epistle, note that man and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.
Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.
Now The Lord of peace Himself gives you peace always by all means. The Lord is with you all.
The salutation of Paul with my own hand, which is the token in every epistle: So I write!
The grace of our Lord, Messiah Yeshua, be with you all. Amen!
