Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,
and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Above all, take up the shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
