11 Bible Verses about Persecution
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
My times are in your hands;
deliver me from the hands of my enemies,
from those who pursue me.
I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
“Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.”
