2 Thessalonians 2:3–4

Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness1 is revealed, the son of destruction,2 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

Hymn : TLH 264 st. 2,4: Preserve Thy Word, O Savior Hymnary.org link

2. Preserve, O Lord, your honor, 
The bold blasphemer smite; 
Convince, convert, enlighten 
The souls in error’s night. 
Reveal your will, dear Savior, 
To all who dwell below, 
Great light of all the living, 
That all your name may know. 

4. Preserve, O Lord, Thy children, 
Thine own blest heritage; 
Resist, disperse, and scatter 
Those who against Thee rage. 
Let Thy commandments guide us, 
Grant us Thy heavenly food; 
Clothe us in Thy rich garments, 
Bought with Thy prescious blood.
