[B-Greek] 2 Thess 2:13

Hi all,
My question has to do with the phrase "εις σωτηριαν εν αγιασμω πνευματος και πιστει αληθειας" in 2 Thess 2:13.
I am having a hard time figuring out the logic of the ESV which renders it " to be saved, through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth."
What grounds are there for making εις σωτηριαν so implicitly verbal? It looks like the translators there also see the second clause ( εν αγιασμω πνευματος και πιστει αληθειας) as modifying the "to be saved" as if it were the controlling verb.
Can someone tell me what I am missing? I am not really interested in whether the ESV is correct in its rendering, I am just looking for guesses at their reasoning...
Thanks so much!
Jason Kenney
