Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 2 Thessalonians 1:6

1:6 It is a righteous thing with God - (However men may judge) to transfer the pressure from you to them. And it is remarkable that about this time, at the passover, the Jews raising a tumult, a great number (some say thirty thousand) of them were slain. St. Paul seems to allude to this beginning of sorrows, #1Th 2:16|, which did not end but with their destruction.
