Bible: Matthew 10:16-18
Persecution of Disciples
10:16 “I 1 am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, 2 so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 10:17 Beware 3 of people, because they will hand you over to councils 4 and flog 5 you in their synagogues. 6 10:18 And you will be brought before governors and kings 7 because of me, as a witness to them and the Gentiles.
