  do not be anxious   do not be anxious   do not be anxious
      beforehand    
  how       how
  you are to speak       or what you are to answer
  or what you are to say;   what you are to say;   or what you are to say;
        12 for the Holy Spirit*
  for what you are to say   but say whatever    
  will be given to you   is given you   will teach you
  in that hour;   in that hour,   in that very hour
          what you ought to say."

  but the Spirit* of your Father   but the Holy Spirit.*    
  speaking through you.        
21 Brother* will deliver up 12 And brother* will deliver up   [see Luke 21:16 below]

23 When they persecute you        
  in one town,        
  flee to the next;        
  for truly, I say to you,        
  you will not have gone        
  through all the towns         
  of Israel,        
  before         
  the Son of man comes."        
297 Matt 24 297 Mark 13* 297 Luke 21
        12 "But before all this
          they will lay their hands 
          on you
          and persecute you,
    9 "But take heed to yourselves;    
9 "Then they will deliver you up   for they will deliver you up   delivering you up
  to tribulation,   to councils;    
  and put you to death;        
  and you will be hated   and you will be beaten    
      in synagogues;   to the synagogues
          and prisons,
      and you will stand   and you will be brought
  by all nations   before governors and kings*   before kings and governors*
  for my name's sake.   for my sake,   for my name's sake.
        13 This will be a time

      before them.    
  [see Matt 24:14 below] 10 And the gospel*    
      must first be preached*    
      to all nations.    
        14 Settle it therefore
          in your minds,
  [see Matt 10:19 above] 11 And when they bring you    
      to trial    
      and deliver you up,    
      do not be anxious   not to meditate
      beforehand   beforehand
      what you are to say;   how to answer;
      but say whatever 15 for I will
      is given you   give you a mouth
      in that hour,    
      for it is not you who speak,    
      but the Holy Spirit.   and wisdom,
          which none
          of your adversaries
          will be able to withstand
          or contradict.
10 And then        
  many will fall away,        
  and betray one another,        
  and hate one another.        
  [see Matt 10:21 above] 12 And brother* will deliver up 16 You will be delivered up
      brother to death,    
      and the father his child,    
      and children will rise    
      against parents   even by parents
          and brothers*
          and kinsmen and friends,
        17 and some of you
  [see Matt 24:9 above]   and have them put to death;   they will put to death;
  [see Matt 10:22 above]   and you will be hated by all   you will be hated by all
      for my name's sake.   for my name's sake.
        18 But not a hair of your head
          will perish.
11 And many false prophets        
  will arise        
  and lead many astray.        
12 And because        
  wickedness is multiplied,        
  most men's love        
  will grow cold.        
13 But he who endures   But he who endures 19 By your endurance
  to the end   to the end     
  will be saved.   will be saved."   you will gain your lives.
14 And this gospel*   [see Mark 13:10 above]    
  of the kingdom        
  will be preached*        
  throughout the whole world,        
  as a testimony        
  to all nations;*        
  and then the end will come."        

 **Note: This cluster of warnings is presented in two versions by both Matthew & Luke but only once by Mark. Mark 13:9-13 is presented here twice to facilitate verbal comparison with both Matthean & Lukan versions. Note that in wording Mark 13:9-13 is in many details closer to the 1st Matthean & 2nd Lukan versions but in narrative sequence it is parallel to the 2nd version in the other two synoptic gospels.
