Romans 13:12

Is far spent (proekopsen).
First aorist active indicative of prokoptw, to cut forward, to advance, old word for making progress. See Luke 2:52; Galatians 1:14; 2 Timothy 2:16; 3:9.

Is at hand (hggiken).
Perfect active indicative, "has drawn nigh." Vivid picture for day-break.

Let us therefore cast off (apotwmeta oun).
Aorist middle subjunctive (volitive) of apotithmi, to put off from oneself "the works of darkness" (ta erga tou skotouv) as we do our night-clothes.

Let us put on (enduswmeta).
Aorist middle subjunctive (volitive) of enduw, to put on. For this same contrast between putting off (apotithmi and apekduw) and putting on (enduw) see Colossians 3:8-12.

The armour of light (ta opla tou potov).
The weapons of light, that belong to the light (to the day time). For the metaphor of the Christian armour see 1 Thessalonians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 6:7; Romans 6:13; Ephesians 6:13.
