2 Thessalonians 2:10-12

Context
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. 2:11 Consequently 3  God sends on them a deluding influence 4  so that they will believe what is false. 2:12 And so 5  all of them who have not believed the truth but have delighted in evil will be condemned. 6 

1 tn Grk “deception for/toward.”

2 tn Grk “they did not accept the love of the truth.”

3 tn Grk “and for this reason.”

4 tn Grk “a working of error.”

5 tn Grk “that.” A new sentence was started here in the translation for stylistic reasons.

6 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”).
