THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK - Chapter 13 - Verse 9

Verse 9. Take heed to yourselves. Be cautious that no man deceive you; or, take care of your lives, not to run into unnecessary danger.

To councils. The higher ecclesiastical courts of the Jews, including the Sanhedrim, or great council of the nation.

Rulers and kings. Referring to Roman officers.

For a testimony against them. Rather, to bear testimony to them; or to be witnesses before them of the truth. This was for the sake of Jesus, or because they were attached to him; and God would overrule it so that at the same time they should bear witness to the rulers of the truth, as was the case with Peter and John, Ac 4; iv.; with Stephen, Ac 6, Ac 7; and with Paul, Ac 23; Ac 24:24,25.

{f} "they shall deliver" Mt 10:17; Re 2:10
