Luke 12:3

Overview - Luke 12
Christ preaches to his apostles to avoid hypocrisy, and fearfulness in publishing his doctrine;
13 warns the people to beware of covetousness, by the parable of the rich man who set up greater barns.
22 We must not be over careful of earthly things,
31 but seek the kingdom of God;
33 give alms;
35 be ready at a knock to open to our Lord whensoever he comes.
41 Christ's ministers are to see to their charges,
49 and look for persecution.
54 The people must take this time of grace;
57 because it is a fearful thing to die without reconciliation.

Luke 12:3  (King James Version)
Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

Job 24:14 Job 24:15 ; Ecclesiastes 10:12 Ecclesiastes 10:13 Ecclesiastes 10:20 ; Matthew 12:36 ; Jude 1:14 Jude 1:15

The houses in Judea being flat-roofed, with a balustrade round about, were used for the purpose of taking the air, sleeping, and prayer, and, it seems, for announcing things in the most public manner. So among the Turks, a crier announces the hours of public worship from the minaret or tower of the mosque.

Matthew 10:27
