[19] Those who had been scattered as a result of the persecution that started because of Stephen made their way as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the message to no one except Jews.[20] But there were some of them, Cypriot and Cyrenian men, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Hellenists, proclaiming the good news about the Lord Jesus.[21] The Lord's hand was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord.

Hiperu 11:36-38
[36] and others experienced mockings and scourgings, as well as bonds and imprisonment.[37] They were stoned, they were sawed in two, they died by the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, destitute, afflicted, and mistreated.[38] The world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts, mountains, caves, and holes in the ground.

Matiu 10:21-23
[21] "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child. Children will even rise up against their parents and have them put to death.[22] You will be hated by everyone because of My name.

For I assure you: You will not have covered the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

[12] But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you.

They will kill some of you.[17] You will be hated by everyone because of My name,[18] but not a hair of your head will be lost.[19] By your endurance gain your lives.

1 Koroniti 4:8-13
[8] Already you are full! Already you are rich! You have begun to reign as kings without us-- and I wish you did reign, so that we also could reign with you![9] For I think God has displayed us, the apostles, in last place, like men condemned to die: we have become a spectacle to the world and to angels and to men.[10] We are fools for Christ, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored![11] Up to the present hour we are both hungry and thirsty; we are poorly clothed, roughly treated, homeless;[12] we labor, working with our own hands. When we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;[13] when we are slandered, we entreat. We are, even now, like the world's garbage, like the filth of all things.

Hiperu 10:32-34
[32] Remember the earlier days when, after you had been enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings.[33] Sometimes you were publicly exposed to taunts and afflictions, and at other times you were companions of those who were treated that way.[34] For you sympathized with the prisoners and accepted with joy the confiscation of your possessions, knowing that you yourselves have a better and enduring possession.

Hiperu 11:33-38
[33] who by faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions,[34] quenched the raging of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, gained strength after being weak, became mighty in battle, and put foreign armies to flight.[35] Women received their dead raised to life again. Some men were tortured, not accepting release, so that they might gain a better resurrection,[36] and others experienced mockings and scourgings, as well as bonds and imprisonment.[37] They were stoned, they were sawed in two, they died by the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, destitute, afflicted, and mistreated.[38] The world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts, mountains, caves, and holes in the ground.

Apotoro 12:1-19
[1] About that time King Herod cruelly attacked some who belonged to the church,[2] and he killed James, John's brother, with the sword.[3] When he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter too, during the days of Unleavened Bread.[4] After the arrest, he put him in prison and assigned four squads of four soldiers each to guard him, intending to bring him out to the people after the Passover.[5] So Peter was kept in prison, but prayer was being made earnestly to God for him by the church.[6] On the night before Herod was to bring him out [for execution], Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, while the sentries in front of the door guarded the prison.[7] Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared, and a light shone in the cell. Striking Peter on the side, he woke him up and said, "Quick, get up!" Then the chains fell off his wrists.[8] "Get dressed," the angel told him, "and put on your sandals." And he did so. "Wrap your cloak around you," he told him, "and follow me."[9] So he went out and followed, and he did not know that what took place through the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.[10] After they passed the first and second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened to them by itself. They went outside and passed one street, and immediately the angel left him.[11] Then Peter came to himself and said, "Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel and rescued me from Herod's grasp and from all that the Jewish people expected."[12] When he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John Mark, where many had assembled and were praying.[13] He knocked at the door in the gateway, and a servant named Rhoda came to answer.[14] She recognized Peter's voice, and because of her joy she did not open the gate, but ran in and announced that Peter was standing at the gateway.[15] "You're crazy!" they told her. But she kept insisting that it was true. Then they said, "It's his angel!"[16] Peter, however, kept on knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were astounded.[17] Motioning to them with his hand to be silent, he explained to them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. "Report these things to James and the brothers," he said. Then he departed and went to a different place.[18] At daylight, there was a great commotion among the soldiers as to what could have become of Peter.[19] After Herod had searched and did not find him, he interrogated the guards and ordered their execution. Then Herod went down from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there.

Apotoro 9:1-14
[1] Meanwhile Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest[2] and requested letters from him to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any who belonged to the Way, either men or women, he might bring them as prisoners to Jerusalem.[3] As he traveled and was nearing Damascus, a light from heaven suddenly flashed around him.[4] Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?"[5] "Who are You, Lord?" he said. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," He replied.[6] "But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."[7] The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the sound but seeing no one.[8] Then Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing. So they took him by the hand and led him into Damascus.[9] He was unable to see for three days, and did not eat or drink.[10] Now in Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. And the Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias!" "Here I am, Lord!" he said.[11] "Get up and go to the street called Straight," the Lord said to him, "to the house of Judas, and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, since he is praying there.[12] In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and placing his hands on him so he may regain his sight."[13] "Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.[14] And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name."

Karatia 1:13
For you have heard about my former way of life in Judaism: I persecuted God's church to an extreme degree and tried to destroy it;

Whakakitenga 2:8-10
[8] "To the angel of the church in Smyrna write: "The First and the Last, the One who was dead and came to life, says:[9] I know your tribulation and poverty, yet you are rich. [I know] the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.[10] Don't be afraid of what you are about to suffer. Look, the Devil is about to throw some of you into prison to test you, and you will have tribulation for 10 days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.

Apotoro 26:9-11
[9] In fact, I myself supposed it was necessary to do many things in opposition to the name of Jesus the Nazarene.[10] This I actually did in Jerusalem, and I locked up many of the saints in prison, since I had received authority for that from the chief priests. When they were put to death, I cast my vote against them.[11] In all the synagogues I often tried to make them blaspheme by punishing them. Being greatly enraged at them, I even pursued them to foreign cities.

1 Koroniti 4:12
we labor, working with our own hands. When we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;

Apotoro 12:1
About that time King Herod cruelly attacked some who belonged to the church,

Piripai 3:6
as to zeal, persecuting the church; as to the righteousness that is in the law, blameless.
