So Jesus said to them, “ For a little while longer the Light is among you. Walk while you have the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you; he who walks in the darkness does not know where he goes.
I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness.
for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light
Therefore Jesus said, “ For a little while longer I am with you, then I go to Him who sent Me.
Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “ I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
May their table before them become a snare; And when they are in peace, may it become a trap.
The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know over what they stumble.
Come, house of Jacob, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.
“I am the Lord, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the nations,
Give glory to the Lord your God, Before He brings darkness And before your feet stumble On the dusky mountains, And while you are hoping for light He makes it into deep darkness, And turns it into gloom.
The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.
While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light.” These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them.
For this reason they could not believe, for Isaiah said again,
“ A little while, and you will no longer see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”
What then? What Israel is seeking, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;
The night is almost gone, and the day is near. Therefore let us lay aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
But their minds were hardened; for until this very day at the reading of the old covenant the same veil remains unlifted, because it is removed in Christ.
For this reason it says, “ Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.”
for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness;
Therefore, just as the Holy Spirit says, “ Today if you hear His voice,
If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth;
On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.
