Luke 9:21-23 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
21 Jesus said to them, `Do not tell this to anyone.'
22 Then he went on to say, `The Son of Man will have much trouble. The leaders of the people, the chief priests, and the scribes will not believe him. He will be killed. On the third day he will be raised from death.'
23 And He said to all the people, `If anyone wants to come with me, he must leave what he himself wants to do. Every day he must take up his cross [be ready to die] and come with me.
