My times are in thy hand. Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,
Yea, tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou are with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
Therefore I am pleased in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in restrictions, for the sake of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Be sober, be vigilant. Your opponent the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom to devour.
If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you.
Bless those who persecute you. Bless ye and do not curse.
And I fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to me, Saul, Saul, why do thou persecute me?
Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or restriction, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Blessed are those who have been persecuted because of righteousness, because the kingdom of the heavens is theirs.
Blessed are ye, when men will hate you, and when they will exclude you, and revile you, and cast out your name as evil, because of the Son of man.
And also all those who want to live devoutly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
And having answered, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, there is no man who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, because of me, and because of the good-news,
but he will receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brothers, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands--with persecutions--and in the coming age, eternal life.
Blessed are ye when they revile you, and persecute you, and say every evil word, being deceitful against you because of me.
