View In My Bible
10 Then he said to them: "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.1 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.2 12 "But before all this, they will lay hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 This will result in your being witnesses to them.3 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves.4 15 For I will give you5 words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends,6 and they will put some of you to death. 17 All men will hate you because of me.7 18 But not a hair of your head will perish.8 19 By standing firm you will gain life.9 20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies,10 you will know that its desolation is near.
