    Definitions for Luke 21:15

    Gainsay - To answer; to speak against.

    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 21:15

    I will give you a mouth and wisdom - Στομα, a mouth, must appear plain to every person to be used here for a ready utterance, or eloquence in speaking. They shall have an abundance of wisdom to know what to say; and they shall have an irresistible eloquence to say what they ought.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 21:15

    A mouth - Eloquence, ability to speak as the case may demand. Compare Exodus 4:11.

    Gainsay - Speak against. They will not be able to "reply" to it, or to "resist" the force of what you shall say.
