a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also asuffer
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
And to you who are troubled arest
with us, when the bLord
Jesus shall be crevealed

of our Lord Jesus Christ:
When he shall come to be aglorified
in his bsaints
, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you aworthy
calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his
goodness, and the work of faith with power:
That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the agrace
of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
