Eph 6:10-18 10 Finally, Be Strong In the "Lord" and in 'The Strength of "His" Might'. 11 Put on the 'Whole Armor' of "God", that 'You' May Be Able to 'Stand Against the Schemes' of the 'Devil'. 12 For 'We' Do Not 'Wrestle Against 'Flesh and Blood', but Against the 'Rulers', Against the 'Authorities', Against the 'Cosmic Powers' over this 'Present Darkness', Against the 'Spiritual Forces' of Evil in the 'Heavenly Places'. 13 Therefore 'Take Up the 'Whole Armor' of "God", that 'You' May Be Able to 'Withstand' in the 'Evil Day', and 'Having Done All', to 'Stand Firm'. 14 Stand therefore, having 'Fastened On' 'The Belt of Truth', and having 'Put On' 'The Breastplate of Righteousness', 15 and, as 'Shoes for your Feet', having 'Put On' the 'Readiness' given by the "Gospel of Peace". 16 In 'All Circumstances' 'Take Up the 'Shield of Faith', with which 'You' Can 'Extinguish' all the 'Flaming Darts' of the 'Evil One'; 17 and 'Take the Helmet of Salvation', and the 'Sword' of the "Spirit", which is the "Word" of "God", 18 'Praying at All Times' in the "Spirit", with All 'Prayer' and 'Supplication' ". To that End 'Keep Alert' with All 'Perseverance', Making 'Supplication' for All the 'Saints'
Ps 27:1-28:1 27 The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear?The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When evil men advance against meto devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me,they will stumble and fall. 3 Though an army besiege me,my heart will not fear;though war break out against me,even then will I be confident.
4 One thing I ask of the Lord,this is what I seek:that I may dwell in the house of the Lordall the days of my life,to gaze upon the beauty of the Lordand to seek him in his temple. 5 For in the day of troublehe will keep me safe in his dwelling;he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacleand set me high upon a rock. 6 Then my head will be exaltedabove the enemies who surround me;at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;I will sing and make music to the Lord.
7 Hear my voice when I call, O Lord;be merciful to me and answer me. 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!"Your face, Lord, I will seek. 9 Do not hide your face from me,do not turn your servant away in anger;you have been my helper.Do not reject me or forsake me,O God my Savior. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me,the Lord will receive me. 11 Teach me your way, O Lord;lead me in a straight pathbecause of my oppressors. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,for false witnesses rise up against me,breathing out violence.
13 I am still confident of this:I will see the goodness of the Lordin the land of the living. 14 Wait for the Lord;be strong and take heartand wait for the Lord.
