See, we are doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
We are making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
