    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:7

    y a vosotros, que sois atribulados, daros reposo con nosotros, cuando se manifieste el Seor Jess del cielo con los angeles de su potencia,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Thessalonians 1:7

    Verse 7. And to you who are
    troubled, rest with us] And while they have tribulation, you shall have that eternal rest which remains for the people of God.

    When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed] But this fullness of tribulation to them, and rest to you, shall not take place till the Lord Jesus come to judge the world.

    With his mighty angels] The coming of God to judge the world is scarcely ever spoken of in the sacred writings without mentioning the holy angels, who are to accompany him, and to form his court or retinue. See Deut. xxxiii. 2; Matt. xxv. 31; xvi. 27; xxvi. 64; Mark viii. 38.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. And to you who are troubled, rest with us , &c.] This is another branch of the justice of God, in rendering to them who are afflicted and persecuted for righteousness sake, rest; a relaxation or rest from persecutions, for a while at least; as the churches of Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had, from that persecution raised at the death of Stephen, ( Acts 9:31) and as the Christians had at the destruction of Jerusalem; which though it was a day of vengeance to the unbelieving Jews, were times of refreshing to the saints, who were now delivered from their persecutors: or rather this designs a rest which remains for the saints after death in the grave, and at the coming of the Lord, and to all eternity; when they shall rest from all their toil and labour, and be freed from sin, and all disquietude by it, and from the temptations of Satan, and likewise from the persecutions of men; (see Job 3:17). And this will be enjoyed in company with the apostles, and other believers; and as it is some alleviation to the sufferings and afflictions of saints now, that the same are accomplished in others, so it will enhance the heavenly glory, rest, and felicity, that they will be partners and sharers in it with the apostles of Christ Jesus, and have the same crown of glory they have; and indeed their company and conversation will be a part of their happiness. When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven ; then will the justice of God take place in both the above branches and instances of it, rendering tribulation to persecutors, and rest to the persecuted. Christ, ever since a cloud received him out of the sight of the apostles up to heaven, has been, as it were, hid, and has not been seen with corporeal eyes by men on earth ever since, but by a very few, as Stephen, and the Apostle Paul; he has only been seen by an eye of faith; at his second coming there will be a revelation of him, and every eye shall see him: and this revelation of him will be from heaven: thither he was received at his ascension, and there he now is; and here he is received, and will be retained until the end of all things; and from hence the saints expect him, and from hence will he descend in person, and then he will be revealed, and appear to the view of everyone: and that with his mighty angels ; which will add to the glory, majesty, and solemnity of that appearance: these are called his angels, because he is the Creator of them, and the object of their worship and adoration, and he is the Lord and head of them, and they are ministering spirits to him and his; and mighty angels, because they excel all other creatures in strength; a remarkable instance of the might and strength of angels is in ( 2 Kings 19:35). The words from the original text may be rendered, with the angels of his power; as they are by the Vulgate Latin, Arabic, and Ethiopic versions, for they will be the ministers of the power of Christ in gathering the elect from the four winds, and all nations, before Christ; and in taking out of his kingdom all that offend, and do iniquity; and in severing the righteous from the wicked; and in casting the latter into the furnace of fire. The Syriac version reads the words, with the power of his angels.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 5-10 -
    Religion, if worth anything, is worth every thing; and those have n religion, or none worth having, or know not how to value it, cannot find their hearts to suffer for it. We cannot by all our sufferings any more than by our services, merit heaven; but by our patience unde sufferings, we are prepared for the promised joy. Nothing more strongl marks a man for eternal ruin, than a spirit of persecution and enmit to the name and people of God. God will trouble those that trouble his people. And there is a rest for the people of God; a rest from sin an sorrow. The certainty of future recompence is proved by the righteousness of God. The thoughts of this should be terrible to wicke men, and support the righteous. Faith, looking to the great day, i enabled partly to understand the book of providence, which appear confused to unbelievers. The Lord Jesus will in that day appear from heaven. He will come in the glory and power of the upper world. Hi light will be piercing, and his power consuming, to all who in that da shall be found as chaff. This appearance will be terrible to those tha know not God, especially to those who rebel against revelation, an obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the great crim of multitudes, the gospel is revealed, and they will not believe it; of if they pretend to believe, they will not obey it. Believing the truth of the gospel, is in order to our obeying the precepts of the gospel Though sinners may be long spared, they will be punished at last. The did sin's work, and must receive sin's wages. Here God punishes sinner by creatures as instruments; but then, it will be destruction from the Almighty; and who knows the power of his anger? It will be a joyful da to some, to the saints, to those who believe and obey the gospel. I that bright and blessed day, Christ Jesus will be glorified and admire by his saints. And Christ will be glorified and admired in them. Hi grace and power will be shown, when it shall appear what he ha purchased for, and wrought in, and bestowed upon those who believe in him. Lord, if the glory put upon thy saints shall be thus admired, ho much more shalt thou be admired, as the Bestower of that glory! The glory of thy justice in the damnation of the wicked will be admired but not as the glory of thy mercy in the salvation of believers. Ho will this strike the adoring angels with holy admiration, and transpor thy admiring saints with eternal rapture! The meanest believer shal enjoy more than the most enlarged heart can imagine while we are here Christ will be admired in all those that believe, the meanest believe not excepted.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    Rest (anesin). See on liberty, Acts xxiv. 23. With this exception only in Paul.

    With us. According to Paul's habit of identifying his experience with that of his Christian readers. See 1 Cor. iv. 8; Rom. viii. 23; Philippians i. 29, 30; ii. 18; iii. 20, 21; 2 Cor. i. 7.

    When the Lord Jesus shall be revealed (en th apokaluyei tou kuriou Ihsou). Lit. in the revelation of the Lord Jesus. For ajpokaluyiv revelation, see on Apoc. i. 1.

    With his mighty angels (met aggelwn dunamewv autou). Lit. with the angels of his power.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    1:7 {Rest with us} (anesin meq' hemwn). Let up, release. Old word from aniemi, from troubles here (#2Co 2:13; 7:5; 8:13), and hereafter as in this verse. Vivid word. They shared suffering with Paul (verse #5) and so they will share (meq') the {rest}. {At the revelation of the Lord Jesus} (en tei apokaluyei tou kuriou iesou). Here the parousia (#1Th 2:19; 3:13; 5:23) is pictured as a {Revelation} (Un-veiling, apo-kalupsis) of the Messiah as in #1Co 1:7, 1Pe 1:7,13 (cf. #Lu 17:30). At this Unveiling of the Messiah there will come the {recompense} (verse #6) to the persecutors and the {rest} from the persecutions. this Revelation will be {from heaven} (ap' ouranou) as to place and {with the angels of his power} (met' aggelwn dunamews autou) as the retinue and {in flaming fire} (en puri flogos, in a fire of flame, fire characterized by flame). In #Ac 7:30 the text is {flame of fire} where puros is genitive (like #Isa 66:15) rather than flogos as here (#Ex 3:2).
