10 Finally, go on acquiring power in the Lord and in the mightyness of his strength.
11 Put on the complete suit of armor from God that you may be able to stand firm against the machinations of the Devil.
12 because we have a wrestling, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places.
13 On this account take up the complete suit of armor from God, that you may be able to resist in the wicked day and, after you have done all things thoroughly, to stand firm.
14 Stand firm, therefore, with your loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and with your feet shod with the equipment of the good news of peace.
16 Above all things, take up the large shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the wicked one's burning missiles.
17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God's word.
