But of the times and moments, brethren, you need not, that we should write to you:
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord shall so come as a thief in the night.
For when they shall say: Peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape.
But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you as a thief.
For all you are the children of light and children of the day: we are not of the night nor of darkness.
Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do: but let us watch, and be sober.
