12 (A)But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and (B)prisons. (C)You will be brought before kings and rulers (D)for My name’s sake. 13 But (E)it will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 (F)Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will [a]answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom (G)which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or [b]resist. 16 (H)You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put (I)some of you to death. 17 And (J)you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. 18 (K)But not a hair of your head shall be lost. 19 By your patience possess your souls.
