and find out what pleases the Lord.111
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness,2 but rather expose them.
For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.
But everything exposed by the light3 becomes visible,
for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper,4 rise from the dead,5 and Christ will shine on you."615
Be very careful, then, how you live7--not as unwise but as wise,
making the most of every opportunity,8 because the days are evil.917
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is.1018
Do not get drunk on wine,11 which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.1219
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs.13 Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord,
always giving thanks14 to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
