I Corinthians 15:1-8

16“Look, I’m sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as serpents and as harmless as doves.17Because people will hand you over to sanhedrinsand flog you in their synagogues,beware of them.18You will even be brought before governors and kings because of Me, to bear witness to them and to the nations.19But when they hand you over, don’t worry about how or what you should speak.For you will be given what to say at that hour,20because you are not speaking, but the Spiritof your Father is speaking through you.
