2 Thessalonians 2:5-7
New International Version
5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things?(A) 6 And now you know what is holding him back,(B) so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back(C) will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.
