5:6 Therefore let vs not sleepe, as doe others: but let vs watch and be sober.  
5:7 For they that sleepe, sleepe in the night, and they that bee drunken, are drunken in the night.  
5:8 But let vs who are of the day, bee sober, putting on the brestplate of faith and loue, and for an helmet, the hope of saluation.
