17 But be on guard against people, for they will hand you over to the (A)courts and flog you (B)in their synagogues; 18 and you will even be brought before governors and kings on My account, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 (C)But when they hand you over, (D)do not worry about how or what you are to say; for what you are to say will be given you in that hour. 20 For (E)it is not you who are speaking, but it is the Spirit of your Father who is speaking [a]in you.

21 “Now (F)brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and (G)children will rise up against parents and [b]cause them to be put to death. 22 And (H)you will be hated by all because of My name, but (I)it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.
