Matthew 24:3–31

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? And Jesus answered and said unto them, gTake heed that no man deceive you. For hmany shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; iand shall deceive many. 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. For lnation shall rise against nation, and mkingdom against kingdom: and there shall be nfamines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of osorrows.

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.
