Romans 13:12

_ _ The night — of evil

_ _ is far spent, the day — of consummated triumph over it

_ _ is at hand: let us therefore cast off — as a dress

_ _ the works of darkness — all works holding of the kingdom and period of darkness, with which, as followers of the risen Savior, our connection has been dissolved.

_ _ and let us put on the armour of light — described at length in Ephesians 6:11-18.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 13:12

The night is far spent, the day is (i) at hand: let us therefore cast off the works (k) of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

(i) In other places we are said to be in the light, but yet so that it does not yet appear what we are, for as yet we see but as it were in the twilight.

(k) That kind of life which those lead that flee the light.
