1 Thessalonians 4:18-5:10Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

But of the times and moments, brethren, you need not, that we should write to you;

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

For when they shall say, peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape.

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

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

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

For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that are drunk, are drunk in the night.

But let us, who are of the day, be sober, having on the breastplate of faith and charity, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.

For God hath not appointed us unto wrath, but unto the purchasing of salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us; that, whether we watch or sleep, we may live together with him.
