But be on guard; I have told you everything beforehand. Bible other translations

“But be on guard.” The Greek text would be more literally translated as “Watch!” or as “Watch out.” But we typically say “Watch out” when there is immediate danger right then and there, which is not the case here. A number of English versions read “be on guard” (ESV; GWN; NIV; NJB).
