1 Thessalonians 5:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)

For those who sleep, sleep at night and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But since we are of the day, we must stay sober by putting on the breastplate[a] of faith and love and as a helmet our hope for salvation.[b] For God did not destine us for wrath[c] but for gaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
