But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3

Here Paul makes a play upon the words of the previous verse –

for not all have (the) faith.”
But the Lord is faithful.”

He is taking the same word, and applying it in two ways.Read the rest

…and that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith. 2 Thessalonians 3:2

The words here closely reflect those of Romans 15:31 –

…that I may be delivered from those in Judea who do not believe.”

Paul was constantly hemmed in and persecuted by those who lacked faith.Read the rest

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified, just as it is with you, 2 Thessalonians 3:1

…comfort your hearts and establish you in every good word and work. 2 Thessalonians 2:17

The verse here is divided in a way where it cannot be taken alone. The word “comfort” is based on Paul’s previous words – “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ, and our God and Father … comfort your hearts.” The word “comfort” here is tied into the intervening words of that same verse which said, “who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace.” There, the word “consolation” is a noun form of the closely corresponding verb “comfort” here.Read the rest

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, and our God and Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace, 2 Thessalonians 2:16

In these words, Paul presents a prayer which is connected to the exhortation he just made. He asked those in Thessalonica (and thus us!) to “stand fast and hold the traditions which you were taught, whether by word or our epistle.” In response to these words, he issues a prayer to confirm this in them.Read the rest
