5 And Jesus began to say to them, f“See that no one leads you astray. 6 gMany will come in my name, saying, h‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray. 7 And when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, ido not be alarmed. This jmust take place, but the end is not yet. 8 For knation will rise against nation, and lkingdom against kingdom. There will be mearthquakes in various places; there will be nfamines. These are but the beginning of the birth pains.
9 o“But pbe on your guard. For they will deliver you over to councils, and you will be beaten qin synagogues, and you will stand before rgovernors and skings for my sake, tto bear witness before them. 10 And the gospel must first be proclaimed uto all nations. 11 And when they bring you to trial and deliver you over, vdo not be anxious beforehand what you are to say, but say wwhatever is given you in that hour, xfor it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit. 12 yAnd brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death. 13 zAnd you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. aBut the one who endures to the end will be saved.
