Matthew 10:32; Matthew 18:26; Matthew 18:29; Matthew 26:31

32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men , him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
26 The servant therefore fell down , and worshipped him, saying , Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying , Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.
31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written , I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad .
