D. The Warfare Required for Dealing
with the Spiritual Enemy
10 1Finally, 2be 3aempowered 4bin the Lord and in the cmight of His strength.
11 1aPut on the 2whole barmor of God that you may be able to 3cstand against the 4dstratagems of the edevil,
12 For our wrestling is not against 1ablood and flesh but against 2the brulers, against the authorities, against the cworld-rulers of 3this ddarkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the 4eheavenlies.
13 Therefore 1take up the whole aarmor of God that you may be able to 2bwithstand in the 3cevil day, and having done all, to 4dstand.
14 Stand therefore, 1having 2agirded your loins with 3btruth and having 4put on the cbreastplate of drighteousness
15 And having 1shod your afeet with the 2firm foundation of the bgospel of cpeace;
16 Besides all these, having 1taken up the ashield of 2faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming 3darts of the bevil one.
17 And receive the 1ahelmet of salvation and the 2bsword of the Spirit, 3which Spirit is the 4cword of God,
18 1By means of all 2aprayer and petition, praying at bevery time in 3cspirit and 4dwatching unto this in 5all perseverance and 6petition concerning all the saints,
19 And afor me, that 1utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known in bboldness the 2cmystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an 1aambassador in a 2bchain, that in it I would speak cboldly, as I dought to speak.
