Bible: Luke 21:12-19

21:12 But before all this, 1  they will seize 2  you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues 3  and prisons. You 4  will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. 21:13 This will be a time for you to serve as witnesses. 5  21:14 Therefore be resolved 6  not to rehearse 7  ahead of time how to make your defense. 21:15 For I will give you the words 8  along with the wisdom 9  that none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. 21:16 You will be betrayed even by parents, 10  brothers, relatives, 11  and friends, and they will have some of you put to death. 21:17 You will be hated by everyone because of my name. 12  21:18 Yet 13  not a hair of your head will perish. 14  21:19 By your endurance 15  you will gain 16  your lives. 17
