12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.4 [Near for these believers is the day when the light of God, Jesus the morning star, appears in their heart. The works of darkness are sin, walking according to the lusts and desires of your flesh instead of walking in the light with God's guidance in words to be spoken and deeds to be performed.]
|Ephesians 6:11-17 |
11 Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Therefore take to you the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to resist and stand in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your waist girded [wrapped] with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
16 Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God [the word of faith in your heart and mouth].
