Watch Yourselves

34 “But watch yourselves (A)lest (B)your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and (C)cares of this life, and (D)that day come upon you suddenly (E)like a trap. 35 For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 But (F)stay awake at all times, (G)praying that you may (H)have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and (I)to stand before the Son of Man.”

33 (A)Be on guard, (B)keep awake.[a] For you do not know when the time will come. 34 (C)It is like a man (D)going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants[b] in charge, (E)each with his work, and commands (F)the doorkeeper to stay awake. 35 (G)Therefore stay awake—for you do not know when the master of the house will come, (H)in the evening, or (I)at midnight, or (J)when the rooster crows,[c] or (K)in the morning— 36 lest (L)he come suddenly and (M)find you asleep. 37 And what I say to you I say to all: (N)Stay awake.”
