|πρὸ δὲ τούτων πάντων ἐπιβαλοῦσιν ἐφ' ὑμᾶς τὰς χεῖρας αὐτῶν καὶ διώξουσιν, παραδιδόντες εἰς τὰς συναγωγὰς καὶ φυλακάς, ἀπαγομένους ἐπὶ βασιλεῖς καὶ ἡγεμόνας ἑνεκεν τοῦ ὀνο ματός μου·
||But before all this they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors for my name's sake.||
|ἀποβήσεται ὑμῖν εἰς μαρτύριον.
||This will be a time for you to bear testimony.||
|θέτε οὖν ἐν ταῖς καρδίαις ὑμῶν μὴ προμελετᾶν ἀπολογηθῆναι,
||Settle it therefore in your minds, not to meditate beforehand how to answer;||
|ἐγὼ γὰρ δώσω ὑμῖν στόμα καὶ σοφίαν ᾗ οὐ δυνήσονται ἀντιστῆναι ἢ ἀντειπεῖν ἀπαντες οἱ ἀντικείμενοι ὑμῖν.
||for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict.||
|παραδοθήσεσθε δὲ καὶ ὑπὸ γονέων καὶ ἀδελφῶν καὶ συγγενῶν καὶ φίλων, καὶ θανατώσουσιν ἐξ ὑμῶν,
||You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death;||
|καὶ ἐσεσθε μισούμενοι ὑπὸ πάντων διὰ τὸ ὀνομά μου.
||you will be hated by all for my name's sake.||
