24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. Ifthey have called the master of the house[a]Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household!26 Therefore do not fear them.For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.
Jesus Teaches the Fear of God
27 “Whatever I tell you in the dark,speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But ratherfear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in[b]hell.29 Are not twosparrows sold for a[c]copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Confess Christ Before Men
32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men,him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
