1Thessalonians 5
New Living Translation
5Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, we don't really need to write you.G1161G4012G5550G2532G2540G80G2192G3756G5532G1125G5213 2For you know quite well that the day of the Lord's return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.G1063G846G1492G199G3754G2250G2962G3779G2064G5613G2812G1722G3571 3When people are saying, "Everything is peaceful and secure," then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman's labor pains begin. And there will be no escape.G1063G3752G3004G1515G2532G803G5119G160G3639G2186G846G5618G5604G1722G1064G2192G2532G1628G3364G1628 4But you aren't in the dark about these things, dear brothers and sisters, and you won't be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief.G1161G5210G80G2075G3756G1722G4655G2443G2250G2638G5209G5613G2812 5For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don't belong to darkness and night.G5210G2075G3956G5207G5457G2532G5207G2250G2070G3756G3571G3761G4655 6So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded.G686G3767G2518G3361G2518G5613G2532G3062G235G1127G2532G3525 7Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk.G1063G2518G2518G3571G2532G3182G3184G3571 8But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.G1161G3525G2249G5607G2250G3525G1746G2382G4102G2532G26G2532G4030G1680G4991 9For God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us.G3754G2316G5087G3756G5087G2248G1519G3709G235G1519G4047G4991G1223G2257G2962G2424G5547 10Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever.G3588G599G5228G2257G2443G1535G1127G1535G2518G2198G260G4862G846 11So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.G1352G3870G240G2532G3618G1520G1520G2531G2532G4160
