You are blessed when men hate you and withdraw their fellowship from you and speak abusively about you and reject your name as evil, [all] for being loyal to the Son of man.
I will show him how many things he will have to suffer for my name's sake."

For from now on there will be a household of five persons divided [against one another], three against two and two against three.
