Ephesians 5:8-14

CEB 8 You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, so live your life as children of light. NRS 8 For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light— CEB 9 Light produces fruit that consists of every sort of goodness, justice, and truth. NRS 9 for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. CEB 10 Therefore, test everything to see what's pleasing to the Lord, NRS 10 Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. CEB 11 and don't participate in the unfruitful actions of darkness. Instead, you should reveal the truth about them. NRS 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. CEB 12 It's embarrassing to even talk about what certain persons do in secret. NRS 12 For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; CEB 13 But everything exposed to the light is revealed by the light. NRS 13 but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, CEB 14 Everything that is revealed by the light is light. Therefore, it says, Wake up, sleeper!Get up from the dead,and Christ will shine on you. NRS 14 for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says, "Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you."
