Ephesians 6: 10-20
6:10 Concerning the rest, brothers, be strengthened in the Lord, by the power of his virtue.
6:11 Be clothed in the armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the treachery of the devil.
6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the directors of this world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in high places.
6:13 Because of this, take up the armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand the evil day and remain perfect in all things.
6:14 Therefore, stand firm, having been girded about your waist with truth, and having been clothed with the breastplate of justice,
6:15 and having feet which have been shod by the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
6:16 In all things, take up the shield of faith, with which you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one.
6:17 And take up the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit (which is the Word of God).
6:18 Through every kind of prayer and supplication, pray at all times in spirit, and so be vigilant with every kind of earnest supplication, for all the saints,
6:19 and also for me, so that words may be given to me, as I open my mouth with faith to make known the mystery of the Gospel,
6:20 in such a manner that I may dare to speak exactly as I ought to speak. For I act as an ambassador in chains for the Gospel.
Luke 13: 31-35
|13:31||On the same day, some of the Pharisees approached, saying to him: “Depart, and go away from here. For Herod wishes to kill you.”|
|13:32||And he said to them: “Go and tell that fox: ‘Behold, I cast out demons and accomplish healings, today and tomorrow. And on the third day I reach the end.’|
|13:33||Yet truly, it is necessary for me to walk today and tomorrow and the following day. For it does not fall to a prophet to perish beyond Jerusalem.|
|13:34||Jerusalem, Jerusalem! You kill the prophets, and you stone those who are sent to you. Daily, I wanted to gather together your children, in the manner of a bird with her nest under her wings, but you were not willing!|
|13:35||Behold, your house will be left desolate for you. But I say to you, that you shall not see me, until it happens that you say: ‘Blessed is he who has arrived in the name of the Lord.’ ”|
