Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
7 Therefore do not be sharers with them, 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.
8 for you were formerly darkness, but now [you are] light in the Lord. Live like children of light 8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
9 (for the fruit of the light [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)
10 trying to learn what is well-pleasing to the Lord. 10 and find out what pleases the Lord.
11 And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather even expose [them]. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
12 For it is shameful even to speak [about] the things being [done] by them in secret, 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret.
13 but all [things] exposed by the light are made visible, 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,
14 for everything made visible is light. Therefore it says, Wake up, sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you. 14 for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said: "Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
15 Therefore, consider carefully how you live, not as unwise but as wise, 15 Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise,
16 making the most of the time because the days are evil. 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
