5:8 for you were at one time darkness, but now you are 1 light in the Lord. Walk as children of the light – 5:9 for the fruit of the light 2 consists in 3 all goodness, righteousness, and truth – 5:10 trying to learn 4 what is pleasing to the Lord. 5:11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but rather 5 expose them. 6 5:12 For the things they do 7 in secret are shameful even to mention. 5:13 But all things being exposed by the light are made evident. 5:14 For everything made evident is light, and for this reason it says: 8
“Awake, 9 O sleeper! 10
Rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you!” 11
5:15 Therefore be very careful how you live – not as unwise but as wise, 5:16 taking advantage of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 5:17 For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise 12 by understanding 13 what the Lord’s will is.
