13 1And as he went forth out of the temple, one of his disciples saith
unto him, Teacher, behold, what manner of stones and what manner of
2And Jesus said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?
there shall not be left here one stone upon another, which shall not be
3And as he sat on the mount of Olives over against the
temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when these
things are all about to be accomplished?
5And Jesus began to say unto
them, Take heed that no man lead you astray.
6Many shall come in my name,
saying, I am he; and shall lead many astray.
7And when ye shall
hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled: these things must
needs come to pass; but the end is not yet.
8For nation shall rise
against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there shall be earthquakes in
divers places; there shall be famines: these things are the beginning of
9But take ye heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up
to councils; and in synagogues shall ye be beaten; and before governors and
kings shall ye stand for my sake, for a testimony unto them.
gospel must first be preached unto all the nations.
11And when they lead
you to judgment, and deliver you up, be not anxious beforehand what
ye shall speak: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak
ye; for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit.
12And brother shall
deliver up brother to death, and the father his child; and children shall
rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to death.
shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the
end, the same shall be saved.
14But when ye see the abomination of
desolation standing where he ought not (let him that readeth understand),
then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the mountains:
15and let him
that is on the housetop not go down, nor enter in, to take anything out his
16and let him that is in the field not return back to take his
17But woe unto them that are with child and to them that give suck
in those days!
18And pray ye that it be not in the winter.
those days shall be tribulation, such as there hath not been the like from
the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never shall
20And except the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh would have
been saved; but for the elect's sake, whom he chose, he shortened the days.
21And then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ; or, Lo,
there; believe it not:
22for there shall arise false Christs and
false prophets, and shall show signs and wonders, that they may lead astray,
if possible, the elect.
23But take ye heed: behold, I have told you all
24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun
shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
25and the stars
shall be falling from heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be
26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in clouds with
great power and glory.
27And then shall he send forth the angels, and
shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part
of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
28Now from the fig tree
learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and putteth forth
its leaves, ye know that the summer is nigh;
29even so ye also, when ye
see these things coming to pass, know ye that he is nigh, even at the
30Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away,
until all these things be accomplished.
31Heaven and earth shall pass
away: but my words shall not pass away.
32But of that day or that hour
knoweth no one, not even the angels in heaven, neither the Son, but the
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
34It is as when a man, sojourning in another country,
having left his house, and given authority to his servants, to each one his
work, commanded also the porter to watch.
35Watch therefore: for ye know
not when the lord of the house cometh, whether at even, or at midnight, or at
cockcrowing, or in the morning;
36lest coming suddenly he find you
37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
