2 Thessalonians 1:5-7

Context
Encouragement in Persecution

1:5 This is evidence of God’s righteous judgment, to make you worthy 1  of the kingdom of God, for which in fact you are suffering. 1:6 For it is right 2  for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, 1:7 and to you who are being afflicted to give rest together with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed 3  from heaven with his mighty angels. 4 

1 tn Grk “so that you may be made worthy.” The passive infinitive καταξιωθῆναι (kataxiwqhnai) has been translated as an active construction in English for stylistic reasons.

2 tn Grk “if in fact/since,” as a continuation of the preceding.

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

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