2 Thessalonians 1:5-7

Encouragement in Persecution

1:5 This is evidence of God’s righteous judgment, to make you worthy of the kingdom of God, for which in fact you are suffering. 1:6 For it is right 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 from heaven with his mighty angels.

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.

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

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

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