Mark 13:9-13

Persecutions Predicted

9 "But you, be on your guard! They will hand you over to sanhedrins, [a] and you will be flogged in the synagogues. You will stand before governors and kings because of Me, as a witness to them.
10 And the good news [b] must first be proclaimed to all nations.
11 So when they arrest you and hand you over, don't worry beforehand what you will say. On the contrary, whatever is given to you in that hour-say it. For it isn't you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
12 Then brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rise up against parents and put them to death.
13 And you will be hated by everyone because of My name. But the one who endures to the end will be delivered. [c]
