Every day while I was with you in the temple complex, you never laid a hand on Me. But this is your hour—and the dominion of darkness.”
“This, then, is the judgment: The light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil.
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. So if the light within you is darkness—how deep is that darkness!
Your eye is the lamp of the body. When your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light. But when it is bad, your body is also full of darkness.
Take care then, that the light in you is not darkness.
Woe to those who go to great lengths
to hide their plans from the Lord.
They do their works in darkness,
and say, “Who sees us? Who knows us?”
Don’t participate in the fruitless works of darkness, but instead expose them.
The night is nearly over, and the daylight is near, so let us discard the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
1 John 1:6
If we say, “We have fellowship with Him,” yet we walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth.
from those who abandon the right paths
to walk in ways of darkness,
1 John 2:9
The one who says he is in the light but hates his brother is in the darkness until now.
1 John 2:11
But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness, walks in the darkness, and doesn’t know where he’s going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

they don’t know what makes them stumble.

They encounter darkness by day,
and they grope at noon

Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
The wise man has eyes in his head,
but the fool walks in darkness.Yet I also knew that one fate comes to them both.
They do not know or understand;
they wander in darkness.
All the foundations of the earth are shaken.
the plague that stalks in darkness,
or the pestilence that ravages at noon.
For look, the wicked string the bow;
they put the arrow on the bowstring
to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
at twilight, in the evening,
in the dark of the night.
For the morning is like darkness to them.
Surely they are familiar with the terrors of darkness!
For our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the world powers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.
Consider the covenant,
for the dark places of the land are full of violence.
