The King James Version Bible

1 Thessalonians 5:2-6

  1. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

  2. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

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

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

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