13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. -from Ephesians 6 (biblegateway.com , I woul appreciate if you give me a link with orthodox bible in english thanks in advance) .
4But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. 5You are all sons of the light and sons of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. 6So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be alert and self-controlled. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. - 1Thessalonians 5 .
What does it mean to "take the helmet of salvation" ? And verse 8 from 1Thessalonians 5 "and the hope of salvation as a helmet" . In my romanian orthodox bible translations is "punând coiful nădejdii de mântuire" wich means putting the helmet wich is the confidence of Salvation , the security of Salvation. Can anyone please explain what this means?
