|New International Version (© 2011)|
For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night.
King James Bible
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
American Standard Version
For they that sleep sleep in the night: and they that are drunken are drunken in the night.
Young's Literal Translation
for those sleeping, by night do sleep, and those making themselves drunk, by night are drunken,
1 Thessalonians 5:7 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For they that sleep - Sleepers and drunkards seek the night season; so the careless and the profligate persons indulge their evil propensities, and avoid all means of instruction; they prefer their ignorance to the word of God's grace, and to the light of life. There seems to be here an allusion to the opinion mentioned under 1 Thessalonians 5:4 (note), to which the reader is requested to refer. It may be remarked, also, that it was accounted doubly scandalous, even among the heathen, to be drunk in the day time. They who were drunken were drunken in the night.
