The Armor of God (ENGLISH: J.B. Phillips Bible NT)

ENGLISH: J.B. Phillips Bible NT

Ephesians 6:10-18

10 In conclusion be strong—not in yourselves but in the Lord, in the power of his boundless resource.

11 Put on God’s complete armour so that you can successfully resist all the devil’s methods of attack.

12 For our fight is not against any physical enemy: it is against organisations and powers that are spiritual. We are up against the unseen power that controls this dark world, and spiritual agents from the very headquarters of evil.

13 Therefore you must wear the whole armour of God that you may be able to resist evil in its day of power, and that even when you have fought to a standstill you may still stand your ground.

14 Take your stand then with truth as your belt, righteousness your breastplate,

15 the Gospel of peace firmly on your feet,

16 salvation as your helmet and in your hand the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God.

17 Above all be sure you take faith as your shield, for it can quench every burning missile the enemy hurls at you.

18 Pray at all times with every kind of spiritual prayer, keeping alert and persistent as you pray for all Christ’s men and women.

ENGLISH: J.B. Phillips Bible NT

The Lord’s Prayer (ENGLISH: J.B. Phillips Bible NT)

ENGLISH: J.B. Phillips Bible NT

9 Pray then like this—‘Our Heavenly Father, may your name be honoured;

10 May your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day the bread we need,

12 Forgive us what we owe to you, as we have also forgiven those who owe anything to us.

13 Keep us clear of temptation, and save us from evil’.”
