Matthew 10:16-23 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
16 I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.1 Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.2 17 "Be on your guard against men; they will hand you over to the local councils3 and flog you in their synagogues.4 18 On my account you will be brought before governors and kings5 as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it.6 At that time you will be given what to say, 20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father7 speaking through you. 21 "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents8 and have them put to death.9 22 All men will hate you because of me,10 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.11 23 When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. I tell you the truth, you will not finish going through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.12
