Thus you shall eat it: with a belt on your waist.
So you shall eat it in haste.
It is the Lord's Passover.
Arise and depart, for this is not your rest. Here we have no continuing city but we seek the one to come. There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.
Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning; and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Gird of the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, …I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind.
