for you know very well that the day of the Lord(A) will come like a thief in the night.(B) While people are saying, “Peace and safety,”(C) destruction will come on them suddenly,(D) as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.(E)

But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness(F) so that this day should surprise you like a thief.(G) You are all children of the light(H) and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep,(I) but let us be awake(J) and sober.(K) For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.(L)

For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
