Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh.
Awake to soberness righteously, and sin not; for some have no knowledge of God: I speak (this) to move you to shame.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of his might.
Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ: that, whether I come and see you and be absent, I may hear of your state, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one soul striving for the faith of the gospel;
So then, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye were taught, whether by word, or by epistle of ours.
Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour,
I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that no one take thy crown.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
