16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves.Therefore be wise as serpents andharmless[a]as doves.17 But beware of men, forthey will deliver you up to councils andscourge you in their synagogues.18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. Forit will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death.22 Andyou will be hated by all for My name’s sake.But he who endures to the end will be saved.23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not havegone through the cities of Israelbefore the Son of Man comes.
