Fear them not therefore (mh oun pobhqhte autou). Repeated in verses Matthew 28 and Matthew 31 (mh pobeisqe present middle imperative here in contrast with aorist passive subjunctive in the preceding prohibitions). Note also the accusative case with the aorist passive subjunctive, transitive though passive. See same construction in Luke 12:5 . In Matthew 10:28 the construction is with apo and the ablative, a translation Hebraism as in Luke 12:4 (Robertson, Grammar of the Greek N.T. in the Light of Historical Research, p. 577).
