Discussion for Proverbs 6:9

  • Joshua on Proverbs 6:9
    1 Thessalonians 5

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

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

    For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

    But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation."
