81Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for 2the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
For the commandments, 3"You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: 4"You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore 5love is the fulfilling of the law.
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you 6to wake from sleep. 7For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
128The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us 9cast off 10the works of darkness and 11put on the armor of light.
1312Let us walk properly as in the daytime, 13not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, 14not in quarreling and jealousy.
But 15put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, 16to gratify its desires.
