“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:”
King James Version (KJV)
5:8 Ye were once darkness - Total blindness and ignorance. Walk as children of light - Suitably to your present knowledge.
Eph 5:8 Ye were sometimes darkness. Not only lived in darkness, but gave off no light and darkened others. Now [are ye] light in the Lord. Shining with the light that comes from Christ.
