9“You must be on your guard. You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues. On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.10And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
11Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.12“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death.
13Everyone will hate you because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.
