In thy hand, are my times, Rescue me from the hand of my foes and from my pursuers!
But, I, say unto you, Be loving your enemies, and praying for them who are persecuting you:
Yea, though I walk through a valley death-shadowed, I will fear no harm, for, thou, art with me, Thy rod and thy staff, they, comfort me.
Wherefore, I take pleasure in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, and straits, in behalf of Christ; for, as soon as I am weak, then, am powerful.
Be sober! be watchful! Your slanderous adversary, as a roaring lion, is walking aboutseeking to devour:
If, the world, is hating, you, ye are getting to know that, me, before you, it hath hated.
Bless them that persecute, bless, and do not curse.
I fell also to the ground, and heard a voice saying unto meSaul! Saul! Why, me, art thou persecuting?
Who shall separate us from the love of the Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Happy, they who have been persecuted for righteousness sake; for, theirs, is the kingdom of the heavens.
Happy, are ye, whensoever men shall hate you, and whensoever they shall separate you, and reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man:
Yea and, all who are determined to live in a godly manner in Christ Jesus, will be persecuted;
Jesus saidVerily, I say unto youThere is, no one, who hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or mother, or father, or children, or lands, for the sake of me, and for the sake of the glad-message,
who shall not receive a hundredfold, now, in this season, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands,with persecutions, and, in the age that is coming, life age-abiding.
Happy, are ye, whensoever they may reproach you and persecute you, and say every evil thing against you, falsely, for my sake:
