Matthew 10:17-19 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Jesus Warns His Apostles of Persecution

17 “Be on your guard! For there will be those who will betray you before their religious councils and brutally beat you with whips in their public gatherings.[a] 18 And because you follow me, they will take you to stand trial in front of rulers and even kings as an opportunity to testify of me before them and the unbelievers.[b] 19 So when they arrest you, don’t worry about how to speak or what you are to say, for the Holy Spirit will give you at that very moment the words to speak.


  1. Matthew 10:17 Although this can be translated “synagogues,” it is actually a gathering of people. No one would be scourged in a synagogue building. See Luke 4:28-30. The Sinaiticus version of Matthew is “courts of justice.”
  2. Matthew 10:18 This prophecy of Jesus was fulfilled many times over with the apostles of the Lamb.
