“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:16 With all possible care redeeming the time - Saving all you can for the best purposes; buying every possible moment out of the hands of sin and Satan; out of the hands of sloth, ease, pleasure, worldly business; the more diligently, because the present are evil days, days of the grossest ignorance, immorality, and profaneness.
Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Using every opportunity; buying them by giving up present enjoyment.
