(13) It shall turn to you for a testimony.--There are but two writers in the New Testament who use the verb (literally, to come out) in this figurative sense. St. Luke is one, and the other is St. Paul, in a passage so closely parallel to this as to read almost like an echo of it (Philippians 1:19). The "testimony" is defined by Mark 13:9, as being borne to the kings and rulers before whom the disciples were to stand.
