Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

"...shall not be able to gainsay..."

by Thoreau200 on July 8, 2017   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A Poem of Jesus Christ
from the Bible: Luke 21:12-15 (King James Version)

But before all these,
They shall lay their hands on you,
And persecute you,
Delivering you up to the synagogues,
And into prisons,
Being brought before kings and rulers
For my name's sake.
And it shall turn to you
For a testimony.
Settle it therefore in your hearts,
Not to meditate before
What ye shall answer:
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom,
Which all your adversaries
Shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
