16 “Look, I’m sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves.a 17 Beware of them, because they will hand you over to local courtsA and flog you in their synagogues.b 18 You will even be brought before governors and kings because of me, to bear witness to them and to the Gentiles.c 19 But when they hand you over, don’t worry about how or what you are to speak.d For you will be given what to say at that hour, 20 because it isn’t you speaking, but the Spirite of your Father is speaking through you.f
