Finally, be strong in the Lord 1 and in his mighty power.211
Put on the full armor of God3 so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,4 but against the rulers, against the authorities,5 against the powers6 of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.713
Therefore put on the full armor of God,8 so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,9 with the breastplate of righteousness in place,10
