“And yee shall be brought before Gouernours and Kings for my sake, for a testimonie against them, and the Gentiles.”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 20. For it is not yee that speake, but the Spirit of your Father, which speaketh in you. 21. And the brother shall deliuer vp the brother to death, and the father the childe: and the children shall rise vp against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
