1 Thessalonians 5:7-9 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For those who are asleep sleep the night away, and drunkards get drunk at night.[a] But since we belong to the day, we must stay alert and clearheaded by placing the breastplate of faith and love over our hearts, and a helmet of the hope of salvation over our thoughts.[b] For God has not destined us to experience wrath but to possess salvation through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.


  1. 1 Thessalonians 5:7 See John 3:9-20.
  2. 1 Thessalonians 5:8 The Aramaic can be translated “be clearheaded in our vision as we are deployed on the battlefield for faithfulness and love, and set apart with the shield of the hope of everlasting life.” See Isa. 59:17; Eph. 6:10-17.
