1 Thessalonians 5:11 Thessalonians 5:11


G. Its Watchfulness and Soberness

1. The Day of the Lord Coming like a Thief

1 But concerning the 1atimes and the seasons, brothers, you have no need for anything to be bwritten to you;

2 For you yourselves know perfectly well that 1like a athief in the bnight, so the 2cday of the Lord comes.

3 When they say, aPeace and security, then 1sudden bdestruction comes upon them, just as birth cpangs to a woman with child; and they shall by no means escape.

2. The Safeguard of Faith, Love, and Hope

4 But you, brothers, are not in adarkness that the day should overtake you like a thief;

5 For you are all sons of alight and sons of the bday. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

6 So then let us not 1asleep, as the rest do, but let us 2bwatch and be csober.

7 For those who sleep, sleep during the anight, and those who get 1bdrunk are drunk during the night;

8 But since we are of the aday, let us be bsober, putting on the 1breastplate of cfaith and love and a 1dhelmet, the 2hope of 3salvation.

9 For God did 1not aappoint us to bwrath but to the obtaining of 2csalvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who 1adied for us in order that whether we 2watch or 3sleep, we may blive together 4with Him.

11 Therefore comfort aone another, and bbuild up each one the other, even as you also do.
