24 And aJesus went out, and bdeparted from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, cThere shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon dthe mount of Olives, ethe disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of fthe end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, gTake heed that no man deceive you. 5 For hmany shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; iand shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that kye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For lnation shall rise against nation, and mkingdom against kingdom: and there shall be nfamines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of osorrows.
9 pThen shall they deliver you up qto be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many rbe offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many sfalse prophets shall rise, and tshall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 uBut he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this xgospel of the kingdom yshall be preached in all zthe world zzfor a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by aDaniel the prophet, stand in bthe holy place, c(whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 dLet him which is on the ehousetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And fwoe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great gtribulation, ghsuch as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except ithose days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for kthe elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then lif any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and mfalse prophets, and nshall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very kelect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if othey shall say unto you, Behold, he is in pthe desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the qsecret chambers; believe it not. 27 rFor as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 sFor wheresoever the sscarcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29 Immediately after the ttribulation of those days ushall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and wthe stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then xshall appear ythe sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall zall the tribes of zathe earth mourn, and they shall see bthe Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with bbpower and great glory. 31 And che shall send his angels * with a great sound of a dtrumpet, and they shall gather together his eelect from the four winds, ffrom one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that * it is near, even gat the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, hThis generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 iHeaven and earth shall pass away, but kmy words shall not pass away.
36 But of lthat day and hour mknoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, nbut my Father only. 37 But oas the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For pas in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, qmarrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 rThen shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 sTwo women shall be grinding tat the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 uWatch therefore: wfor ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 xBut know this, that if the ygoodman of the house had known in what watch zthe thief would come, he would have uwatched, and would not have suffered his house to be abroken up. 44 Therefore be ye also bready: wfor in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 cWho then is a dffaithful and ddwise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 eBlessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That fhe shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 gBut and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord hdelayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall * icut him asunder, and appoint him his portion kwith the hypocrites: lthere shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
