2 Thessalonians 2:15-17

2:15 Therefore, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold on to the traditions that we taught you, whether by speech or by letter. 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, 2:17 encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good thing you do or say.

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

tn Grk “that you were taught whether by word or by letter of ours.”

tn Grk simply “strengthen,” with the object understood from the preceding.

tn Grk “every good work and word.”
