What do righteousness and wickedness have in common?
Men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. – You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
Darkness has blinded him. – Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. – For love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. – The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. – For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
