Matthew 10:16

Context
Persecution of Disciples

10:16 “I 1  am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, 2  so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.

Matthew 10:22

Context
10:22 And you will be hated by everyone because of my name. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

1 tn Grk “Behold I.” The Greek word ἰδού (idou) has not been translated because it has no exact English equivalent here, but adds interest and emphasis (BDAG 468 s.v. 1).

2 sn This imagery of wolves is found in intertestamental Judaism; see Pss. Sol. 8:23, 30.
