Romans 13:11-12

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.

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.
