The Letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians    5:15-20

5:15 And so, brothers, see to it that you walk cautiously, not like the foolish,
5:16 but like the wise: atoning for this age, because this is an evil time.
5:17 For this reason, do not choose to be imprudent. Instead, understand what is the will of God.
5:18 And do not choose to be inebriated by wine, for this is self-indulgence. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit,
5:19 speaking among yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual canticles, singing and reciting psalms to the Lord in your hearts,
5:20 giving thanks always for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to God the Father.
