ENGLISH: Knox Bible
10 I have no more to say, brethren, except this; draw your strength from the Lord, from that mastery which his power supplies.
11 You must wear all the weapons in God’s armoury, if you would find strength to resist the cunning of the devil.
12 It is not against flesh and blood that we enter the lists; we have to do with princedoms and powers, with those who have mastery of the world in these dark days, with malign influences in an order higher than ours.
13 Take up all God’s armour, then; so you will be able to stand your ground when the evil time comes, and be found still on your feet, when all the task is over.
14 Stand fast, your loins girt with truth, the breastplate of justice fitted on,
15 and your feet shod in readiness to publish the gospel of peace.✻
16 With all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fire-tipped arrows of your wicked enemy;
17 make the helmet of salvation your own, and the sword of the spirit, God’s word.✻
18 Use every kind of prayer and supplication; pray at all times in the spirit;✻ keep awake to that end with all perseverance; offer your supplication for all the saints.
