Romans 13:11-14

Context
Motivation to Godly Conduct

13:11 And do this 1  because we know 2  the time, that it is already the hour for us to awake from sleep, for our salvation is now nearer than when we became believers. 13:12 The night has advanced toward dawn; the day is near. So then we must lay aside the works of darkness, and put on the weapons of light. 13:13 Let us live decently as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in discord and jealousy. 13:14 Instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh to arouse its desires. 3 

1 tn Grk “and this,” probably referring to the command to love (13:8-10); hence, “do” is implied from the previous verses.

2 tn The participle εἰδότες (eidotes) has been translated as a causal adverbial participle.

3 tn Grk “make no provision for the flesh unto desires.”
