1 Thessalonians 2:12

To the end that (eiv to).
Final use of eiv and the articular infinitive, common idiom in the papyri and Paul uses eiv to and the infinitive fifty times (see again in 3:2), some final, some sub-final, some result (Robertson, Grammar, pp. 989-91).

Walk worthily of God (peripatein axiwv tou teou).
Present infinitive (linear action), and genitive case with adverb axiwv as in Colossians 1:10 (cf. Philippians 1:27; Ephesians 4:1), like a preposition.

Calleth (kalountov).
Present active participle, keeps on calling. Some MSS. have kalesantov, called.

Kingdom (basileian)
here is the future consummation because of glory (doxan) as in 2 Thessalonians 1:5; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 15:50; Galatians 5:21; 2 Timothy 4:1,18), but Paul uses it for the present kingdom of grace also as in 1 Corinthians 4:20; Romans 14:17; Colossians 1:13.
