2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 GNB
(9) The Wicked One will come with the power of Satan and perform all kinds of false miracles and wonders, (10) and use every kind of wicked deceit on those who will perish. They will perish because they did not welcome and love the truth so as to be saved. (11) And so God sends the power of error to work in them so that they believe what is false. (12) The result is that all who have not believed the truth, but have taken pleasure in sin, will be condemned.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 ESV
(9) The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, (10) and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. (11) Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, (12) in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 NWT
9 But the lawless one's presence is according to the operation of Satan with every powerful work and lying signs and portents 10 and with every unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, as a retribution because they did not accept the love of the truth that they might be saved. 11 So that is why God lets an operation of error go to them, that they may get to believing the lie, 12 in order that they all may be judged because they did not believe the truth but took pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 CEV
(9) When the wicked one appears, Satan will pretend to work all kinds of miracles, wonders, and signs. (10) Lost people will be fooled by his evil deeds. They could be saved, but they will refuse to love the truth and accept it. (11) So God will make sure that they are fooled into believing a lie. (12) All of them will be punished, because they would rather do evil than believe the truth.

You will note the reference windows often include more than one translation of the Bible. The reason is to strive to gain the best possible understanding of the original Hebrew and Greek. Since we don't speak those languages, we rely on those who have come before and made the effort to translate those texts into English for us. Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
