'I am sending you out like sheep among wolves, therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. Be on your guard, you will be handed over to the local councils, and be flogged in the synagogues. On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the gentiles. But when they say arrest you do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Brother will betray brother unto death and a father his child. Children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. You will be hated by everyone because of me. But the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. When you are persecuted in one place, flee to another. Truly I tell you, you will not finish going through through the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
