 8 Be sober and vigilant, because your adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. [See Footnote 4 of Genesis 3 for more on the devil's devouring.]

 9 Resist him, standing fast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being experienced by all your brothers in the world. [All who are determined to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Tim 3:12.]
