(Eph 6:14)  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth [who is doing the girding?], and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (Eph 6:15)  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (Eph 6:16)  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (Eph 6:17)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: (Eph 6:18)  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
