12 lBut before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and mprisons. nYou will be brought before kings and rulers ofor My name’s sake. 13 But pit will turn out for you as an occasion for testimony. 14 qTherefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will 6answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom rwhich all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or 7resist. 16 sYou will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, relatives and friends; and they will put tsome of you to death. 17 And uyou will be hated by all for My name’s sake. 18 vBut not a hair of your head shall be lost. 19 By your patience possess your souls.
20 w“But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that xall things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 yBut woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles zuntil the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
