2:10 and with every kind of evil deception directed against 1 those who are perishing, because they found no place in their hearts for the truth 2 so as to be saved.
2 Thessalonians 2:12Context
2:12 And so 3 all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned. 4
1 tn Grk “deception for/toward.”
2 tn Grk “they did not accept the love of the truth.”
3 tn Grk “that.” A new sentence was started here in the translation for stylistic reasons.
4 tn Grk “be judged,” but in this context the term clearly refers to a judgment of condemnation (BDAG 568 s.v. κρίνω 5.b.α; cf. KJV “that they all might be damned”). CEV views the condemnation as punishment (“will be punished”).
