2 Thessalonians 2:8

Context
2:8 and then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord 4  will destroy by the breath of his mouth and wipe out by the manifestation of his arrival.

1 tn Or perhaps “return” (cf. CEV).

2 tn Grk “our gathering with him.”

3 tn Grk “brothers.” See note on the phrase “brothers and sisters” in 1:3.

4 tc ‡ Several important witnesses of the Alexandrian and Western traditions, as well as many other witnesses, read ᾿Ιησοῦς (Ihsous, “Jesus”) after κύριος (kurios, “Lord”; so א A D* F G Lc P Ψ 0278 33 81 104 365 1241 2464 pc latt sy co). But there is sufficient evidence in the Alexandrian tradition for the shorter reading (B 1739 1881), supported by the Byzantine text as well as Irenaeus. Although it is possible that scribes overlooked ᾿Ιησοῦς if the two nomina sacra occurred together (kMsiMs), since “the Lord Jesus” is a frequent enough appellation, it looks to be a motivated reading. NA27 places ᾿Ιησοῦς in brackets, indicating some doubts as to its authenticity.
