“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:6 Awake, and keep awake - Being awakened, let us have all our spiritual senses about us.
1Th 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others. Since Christians are of the day, they should be wide awake. Day is not the time for sleep. A sleep of the spiritual faculties, which renders one insensible to danger, is meant. Instead of sleeping, Christians should watch and be sober minded. For a comment declaring how we should obey this, turn to Lu 21:34,36.
