Watch therefore, because you do not know the day nor the hour. Bible other translations

“watch.” The Greek is grēgoreō (#1127 γρηγορέω; pronounced grey-gor-ehˈō), which means “be awake” (sometimes used for being alive) “watch,” “be alert,” “pay attention.” However, in this context it means more than just “watch,” it has the pregnant meaning of being alert and paying attention, in large part by doing what we are supposed to be doing. It does not mean, “sit back, relax, and just keep watch.” It means be doing what you are supposed to be doing until the Lord comes.
