The Day of the Lord

1 Now as to the 1times and the epochs, brethren, you 2have no need of anything to be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know full well that 3the day of the Lord awill come 4just like a thief in the night. 3 While they are saying, "5Peace and safety!" then b6destruction cwill come upon them suddenly like 7labor pains upon a woman with child , and they will not escape. 4 But you, brethren, are not in 8darkness, that the day would overtake you d9like a thief; 5 for you are all 10sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of 11darkness; 6 so then let us not 12sleep as e13others do, but let us be alert and f14sober. 7 For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get 15drunk at night. 8 But since 16we are of the day, let us 17be gsober, having put on the 18breastplate of 19faith and love, and as a 20helmet, the 21hope of salvation. 9 For God has not destined us for 22wrath, but for 23obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 24who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. 11 Therefore hencourage one another and 25build up one another, just as you also are doing.
