“¶ Behold, I send you foorth as sheepe in the middest of wolues: be yee therefore wise as serpents, and harmelesse as doues.”
King James Version (KJV)
13. And if the house be worthy, let your peace come vpon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace returne to you. 14. And whosoeuer shall not receiue you, nor heare your words: when yee depart out of that house, or city, shake off the dust of your feete. 15. Uerely I say vnto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of iudgment, then for that citie. 16. ¶ Behold, I send you foorth as sheepe in the middest of wolues: be yee therefore wise as serpents, and harmelesse as doues. 17. But beware of men: for they will deliuer you vp to the Councils, and they will scourge you in their Synagogues, 18. And yee shall be brought before Gouernours and Kings for my sake, for a testimonie against them, and the Gentiles. 19. But when they deliuer you vp, take no thought, how or what ye shall speake, for it shall bee giuen you in that same houre what ye shall speake.
