22All men will hate you because of me,1 but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.223When 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.324"A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.425It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub,a5 how much more the members of his household!26"So do not be afraid of them. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.627What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One7 who can destroy both soul and body in hell.29Are not two sparrows sold for a pennyb ? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.831So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.932"Whoever acknowledges me before men,10 I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.
