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.
