6 so then let us not 1sleep as 2others do, but let us be alert and 3sober.
7 For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get 4drunk at night.
8 But since 5we are of the day, let us 6be sober, having put on the 7breastplate of 8faith and love, and as a 9helmet, the 10hope of salvation.
9 For God has not destined us for 11wrath, but for 12obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 13who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him.
