Now concerning 1the times and the seasons, brothers,a2you have no need to have anything written to you.
For you yourselves are fully aware that 3the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
While people are saying, "There is peace and security," then 4sudden destruction will come upon them 5as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.
But you 6are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.
For you are all 7childrenb of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.
So then 8let us not sleep, as others do, but let us 9keep awake and 10be sober.
