No man deceive you by vain words; for why for these things the wrath of God came upon the sons of unbelief.
Therefore do not ye be made partners of them.
For ye were sometime darknesses, but now ye be light in the Lord. Walk ye as the sons of light [Walk as the sons of light].
For the fruit of light is in all goodness, and rightwiseness, and truth.
And prove ye what thing is well pleasing to God. [Proving what is well pleasing to God.]
And do not ye commune to unfruitous works of darknesses; but more rather reprove ye [them].
For what things be done of them in privy, it is foul, yea, to speak.
And all things that be reproved of the light, be openly showed; for all thing that is showed, is light. [Forsooth all things that be reproved of the light, be made open; forsooth all thing that is made open, is light.]
For which thing he saith, Rise thou that sleepest, and rise up from death, and Christ shall lighten thee. [+For which thing he saith, Rise thou that sleepest, and rise up from dead, and Christ shall illumine, or lighten, thee.]
Therefore, brethren, see ye, how warily ye shall go; not as unwise men, but as wise men,
again-buying the time, for the days be evil.
