1 Thessalonians 4:18-5:10 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
5 But of the times and moments, brethren, you need not, that we should write to you;
2 For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night.
3 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.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 For all you are the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do; but let us watch, and be sober.
7 For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that are drunk, are drunk in the night.
8 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.
9 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.
