10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of
the of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts
wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore take up take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in
evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you will be able quench all the fiery darts of
the wicked one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 praying with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with
all perseverance and supplication for all the saints--"
