Luke 21

21 And he looked up, aand saw the rich men casting their bgifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two ||mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the bofferings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

cAnd as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and dgifts, he said, As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which ethere shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: ffor many shall come in my name, saying, I am gChrist; ||and the time draweth near: fgo ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and hcommotions, be not iterrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not kby and by.

10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. 12 But before all these, lthey shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and minto prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. 13 And nit shall turn to you for a testimony. 14 oSettle it therefore in your hearts, not to pmeditate before what ye shall answer: 15 For I will give you qa mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. 16 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. 17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. 18 But rthere shall not an hair of your head perish. 19 In your spatience tpossess ye your souls.

20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem ucompassed with armies, then know that wthe desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; xand let not them that are in the ycountries enter thereinto. 22 For these be the days of zvengeance, that all things awhich are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great bdistress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by cthe edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be dtrodden down of the Gentiles, euntil the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. 25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth fdistress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on gthe earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then hlook up, and lift up your heads; for your iredemption draweth nigh.

29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know kof your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

34 And ltake heed to yourselves, mlest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares nof this life, and so that day ocome upon you unawares. 35 For pas a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 qWatch ye therefore, and rpray always, that ye may be saccounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and tto stand before the Son of man.

37 And in the day time he was uteaching xin the temple; and at night he went out, and yabode in zthe mount that is called the mount of Olives. 38 And all the people xcame early in the morning to him xin the temple, for to hear him.
