    2:3
    WH NU : the man of lawlessness [or, man of rebellion]
    var/TR : the man of sin

    The WH NU has superior attestation :Sin. B 0278 1739 cop (pages 652,53)

    2:4
    WH NU : to sit
    var 1/TR : to sit as God
    var 2 : so as to sit as God

    "The two variants are scribal expansions..." (p.653)

    2:11
    WH NU : he sends
    var/TR : he will send

    The TR reading is "based on inferior testimony...This reading was multiplied in the majority of manuscripts,which was followed by TR (and so KJV and NKJV)." (p.654)

    Here are two places where the WH and NU agreed with the TR as far as variants are concerned.

    1:2b : NU
    2:13 : WH
