Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these [things] the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience.
Therefore do not be sharers with them,
References for Ephesians 5:7
for you were formerly darkness, but now [you are] light in the Lord. Live like children of light
(for the fruit of the light [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth),
trying to learn what is well-pleasing to the Lord.
And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather even expose [them].
For it is shameful even to speak [about] the things being [done] by them in secret,
but all [things] exposed by the light are made visible,
for everything made visible is light. Therefore it says, Wake up, sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.
Therefore, consider carefully how you live, not as unwise but as wise,
making the most of the time because the days are evil.
