For you yourselvesknowfullwell that 3the day of the Lordawill come4justlike a thief in the night.
3While they are saying, "5Peace and safety!" thenb6destructioncwill come upon them suddenlylike7laborpains upon a woman with child , and they will not escape.
But you, brethren, are not in 8darkness, that the day would overtake you d9like a thief;
for you are all10sons of light and sons of day. We are not of nightnor of 11darkness;
