Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 11 persecutions, sufferings--what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them.
12 And indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted, 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
13 while evil people and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived themselves. 13 while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
