The Armor of God (ENGLISH: Good News Bible – American Translation)

Armor of God 2d

ENGLISH: Good News Bible – American Translation

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 Finally, receive your power from the Lord and from his mighty strength.

11 Put on all the armor that God supplies. In this way you can take a stand against the devil’s strategies.

12 This is not a wrestling match against a human opponent. We are wrestling with rulers, authorities, the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world.

13 For this reason, take up all the armor that God supplies. Then you will be able to take a stand during these evil days. Once you have overcome all obstacles, you will be able to stand your ground.

14 So then, take your stand! Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God’s approval as your breastplate.

15 Put on your shoes so that you are ready to spread the Good News that gives peace.

16 In addition to all these, take the Christian faith as your shield. With it you can put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Also take salvation as your helmet and God’s word as the sword that the Spirit supplies.

18 Pray in the Spirit in every situation. Use every kind of prayer and request there is. For the same reason be alert. Use every kind of effort and make every kind of request for all of God’s people.
