The Day of the Lord


1 But concerning athe times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.
2 For you yourselves know perfectly that athe day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then asudden destruction comes upon them, bas labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
4 aBut you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all asons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
6 aTherefore let us not sleep, as others do, but blet us watch and be 1sober.
7 For athose who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk bare drunk at night.
8 But let us who are of the day be sober, aputting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
9 For aGod did not appoint us to wrath, bbut to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 awho died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
11 Therefore 1comfort each other and 2edify one another, just as you also are doing.

Various Exhortations

12 And we urge you, brethren, ato recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and 1admonish you,
13 and to esteem them very highly

Prayer with Confidence in Final Salvation

A Prayer of David.

1 HEAR a just cause, O LORD, Attend to my cry; Give ear to my prayer which is not from deceitful lips.
2 Let my vindication come from Your presence; Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright.

3 You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; aYou have 1tried me and have found 2nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not btransgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, By the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer.
5 aUphold my steps in Your paths, That my footsteps may not slip.

6 aI have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God; Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.
7 Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand, O You who 1save those who trust in You From those who rise up against them.

9 From the wicked who oppress me, From my deadly enemies who surround me.

10 They have closed up their afat hearts; With their mouths they bspeak proudly.
11 They have now surrounded us in our steps; They have set their eyes, crouching down to the earth,
12 As a lion is eager to tear his prey, And like a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O LORD, Confront him, cast him down; Deliver my life from the wicked with Your sword,
14 With Your hand from men, O LORD, From men of the world who have their portion in this life, And whose belly You fill with Your hidden treasure. They are satisfied with children, And leave the rest of their possession for their babes.

15 As for me, aI will see Your face in righteousness; bI shall be satisfied when I cawake in Your likeness.
