Matthew 24:9-14, Mark 13:9-13, Luke 21:12-19
[A]“Be on your guard; for before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you. They will deliver you over to councils and synagogues. You will be beaten in the synagogues, put in prisons, and brought before rulers and kings for my name’s sake, for a testimony against them. But this will give you an opportunity to testify to them. And the gospel must first be proclaimed among all nations.
[B]“But when they lead you away and deliver you up to be afflicted and killed, settle it in your heart beforehand not to worry or meditate about what you will say. For I will give you words of wisdom which none of your adversaries will be able to refute or resist. And whatever is given you in that hour, say it. For it will not be you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
[C]“You will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. Then many will fall away and will betray and hate one another. Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his son; and children will rise up against their parents, causing them to be put to death. You will be betrayed by parents, brothers, relatives, friends, and they will cause many of you to be put to death.
[D]“Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. Iniquity will abound, causing the love of many to grow cold. Everyone will hate you because of my name, but he who endures to the end will be saved. Not a hair of your head will perish, for by your patience you will keep your souls.
[E]“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness to all nations, and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:9-14, KJV
9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Mark 13:9-13, KJV
9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. 10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations. 11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost. 12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Luke 21:12-19, KJV12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. 13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony. 14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. 18 But there shall not an hair of your head perish. 19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
