2 Thessalonians 1:7-8

Context
1:7 and to you who are being afflicted to give rest together with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed 1  from heaven with his mighty angels. 2  1:8 With flaming fire he will mete out 3  punishment on those who do not know God 4  and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

1 tn Grk “at the revelation of the Lord Jesus.”

2 tn Grk “angels of power,” translated as an attributive genitive.

3 tn Grk “meting out,” as a description of Jesus Christ in v. 7. Because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started at the beginning of v. 8 in the translation.

4 sn An allusion to Jer 10:25, possibly also to Ps 79:6 and Isa 66:15.
