1Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,
2making the best use of the time, because 3the days are evil.
Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what 4the will of the Lord is.
And 5do not get drunk with wine, for that is 6debauchery, but 7be filled with the Spirit,
addressing one another in 8psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,
9giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father 10in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
11submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
