On your question, it is a textual problem. Your Bible windows is following
the "current" NA/UBS text. It is debated.Western, Caesarean and Alexandrian
groupings are all split between the imperative and the future.
The Byz/Koine/majority text goes with the 'imperative'.
Contextually, both readings fit.
>In Lk 21:19 Bible Windows gives KTHSASQE as aorist imperative
>mid dep 2nd pers plural, while it is given as future middle by
>Robertson (NT Word pict.).
>The imperative is supported by AV, DBY and WEB, while the future
>is supported by BBE, ASV, NRSV, RSV, GWT and VUL.
>Would anyone like to comment.
