New Revised Standard Version Updated Edition
8 for once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Walk as children of light,(A) 9 for the fruit of the light[a] is found in all that is good and right and true. 10 Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness; rather, expose them.(B) 12 For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly, 13 but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, 14 for everything that becomes visible is light. Therefore it says,
Rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”(C)
- 5.9 Other ancient authorities read of the Spirit
