Bible: Mark 13:9-13

Persecution of Disciples

13:9You must watch out for yourselves. You will be handed over 1  to councils 2  and beaten in the synagogues. 3  You will stand before governors and kings 4  because of me, as a witness to them. 13:10 First the gospel must be preached to all nations. 13:11 When they arrest you and hand you over for trial, do not worry about what to speak. But say whatever is given you at that time, 5  for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit. 13:12 Brother will hand over brother to death, and a father his child. Children will rise against 6  parents and have them put to death. 13:13 You will be hated by everyone because of my name. 7  But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 8
