The Day of the Lord
(Zephaniah 1:7–18; Malachi 4:1–6; 2 Peter 3:8–13)

1Of the tymes and seasons brethren ye have no nede that I write vnto you: 2for ye youre selves knowe parfectly that the daye of the Lorde shall come even as a thefe in the nyght. 3When they shall saye peace and no daunger than commeth on the soden destruccion as the travalynge of a woma with childe and they shall not scape. 4But ye brethre are not in darcknes that yt daye shuld come on you as it were a thefe. 5Ye are all the childre of light and the children of ye daye. We are not of ye nyght ne ther of darcknes. 6Therfore let vs not slepe as do other: but let vs watch and be sober. 7For they that slepe slepe in the nyght: and they that be dronken are dronken in the nyght. 8But let vs which are of the daye be sober armed with the brest plate of fayth and love and with hope of salvacio as an helmet. 9For god hath not apoynted vs vnto wrath: but to obtayne salvacion by ye meanes of oure lorde Iesu Christ 10which died for vs: that whether we wake or slepe we shuld lyve togedder with him. 11Wherfore comforte youre selves togedder and edifie one another even as ye do.
