katapi HOME Luke 21:8-19 - Signs and Persecutions  Lk.21.8-19- Mt.24.3-14, Mk.13.3-13 | KNSB Contents | notes

21 8 And he said, "Take heed that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name, saying, 'I am he!' and, 'The time is at hand!' Do not go after them. 21 9 And when you hear of wars and tumults, do not be terrified; for this must first take place, but the end will not be at once."

21 10 Then he said to them, "Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; 21 11 there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. 21 12 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. 21 13 This will be a time for you to bear testimony. 21 14 Settle it therefore in your minds, not to meditate beforehand how to answer; 21 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. 21 16 You will be delivered up even by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends, and some of you they will put to death; 21 17 you will be hated by all for my name's sake. 21 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 21 19 By your endurance you will gain your lives.
