Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance.
And He *came and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter,
“Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?
“Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.
And He *came to the disciples and *found them sleeping, and *said to Peter,
“So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour?
You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”
“ Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap;
Do this, knowing the time, that it is
already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.
1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
1 Thessalonians 5:5
for you are all
sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness;
See to it that no one
comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled;
1 Peter 4:7
The end of all things is near; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.
1 Peter 5:8
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Wake up, and strengthen the things that remain, which were about to die; for I have not found your deeds completed in the sight of My God.
I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.”)
