who mind earthly things.)”

34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting [over-eating],
and drunkenness, and cares of this life,
and so that day come upon you unawares.
“35 For as a snare shall it come on all them
that dwell on the face of the whole earth.”
