Mark 13:13 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 13:13

And ye shall be hated of all men
Not only of your friends and relations of your countrymen the Jews; but of all men, the generality of men, in, all nations of the world, wherever they came:

for my name's sake;
for the sake of Christ and his Gospel, they professed and preached:

but he that shall endure;
reproaches, afflictions, and persecutions, patiently; or persevere in the faith of Christ, in the profession of his name, and in preaching his Gospel:

to the end;
of such troubles, and of life:

the same shall be saved;
if not with a temporal, yet with an everlasting salvation; (See Gill on Matthew 10:22), (See Gill on Matthew 24:13).
