Matthew 26:52

Matthew 26:52: But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.

Luke 22:36-38: Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.” So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.” And He said to them, “It is enough.”

Matthew says that Jesus said not to take swords, but Luke says that Jesus said to take swords.

Matthew is speaking of how we shouldn't live a life of violence, whereas Luke is speaking of preparing in self-defense.

Since they're speaking of different things, the verses do not conflict.
