61Let no one 2deceive you with empty words, for because of these things 3the wrath of God comes upon 4the sons of disobedience.
Therefore 5do not become partners with them;
for 6at one time you were 7darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. 8Walk as children of light
(for 9the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),
and 10try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.
1111Take no part in the 12unfruitful 13works of darkness, but instead 14expose them.
For 15it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
But when 16anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,
for anything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, 17"Awake, O sleeper, and 18arise from the dead, and 19Christ will shine on you."
1520Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
1621making the best use of the time, because 22the days are evil.
