2 Thessalonians 1:8-10

Context
1:8 With flaming fire he will mete out 1  punishment on those who do not know God 2  and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 1:9 They 3  will undergo the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his strength, 4  1:10 when he comes to be glorified among his saints and admired 5  on that day among all who have believed – and you did in fact believe our testimony. 6 

1 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.

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

3 tn Grk “who,” describing the people mentioned in v. 8. A new sentence was started here in the translation by replacing the relative pronoun with a personal pronoun.

4 tn Or “power,” or “might.” The construction can also be translated as an attributed genitive: “from his glorious strength” (cf. TEV “glorious might”; CEV “glorious strength”; NLT “glorious power”).

sn An allusion to Isa 2:10, 19, 21.

5 tn Or “marveled at.”

6 tn Grk “because our testimony to you was believed.”
